Teen water polo player Cole Miller has died after being punched once in the back of the head in Brisbane's nightclub district.
Police allege four men set upon Miller and his friend at about 3:30am Sunday morning in Fortitude Valley.
It's alleged the 18-year-old was punched once in the back of the head and hit the pavement. He was taken to hospital with critical head injuries but died on Monday.
"Two 21-year-old men, one from Coombabah and the other from Tanah Merah, have each been charged with one count of grievous bodily harm," read a statement from Queensland police.
The water polo community started posting tributes to Miller after hearing of his life-threatening condition.
