The student is believed to have suffered a cardiac arrest and despite CPR attempts was prounounced dead at the scene in San Jose, near Playa d’en Bossa.
The keen rugby player, from West Yorkshire, was enjoying a holiday with his mates when the tragedy struck.
His Facebook wall has been plastered with messages from friends and family.
Darcy Teague, from Pontefract, wrote: “No words can even describe what everyone’s feeling right now, what an absolute legend you are, you will be missed by so many rest easy big man!”

A postmortem is being conducted to find out whether or not Ben was intoxicated when he died.
