A British father-of-four has been shot dead in his Porsche outside a sports club in the Thai resort of Pattaya.

Tony Kenway was killed in the driver’s seat of his red Porsche Cayenne GTS, in the car park of the Sanit Sports Club in Bang Lamung district, the Bangkok Post reported.

It and other Thai news outlets ran CCTV of the murder, issued by police in a bid to track the killer.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has confirmed it is in contact with local police over the death of a British man.

The newspaper reported that eyewitnesses told police the gunman, described as a ‘chubby man wearing a white T-shirt and black jacket’, opened Mr Kenway’s car door and shot him once before escaping on a motorcycle.

It also stated that Mr Kenway’s wife had told officers he had set up a website design business.

Sanit Sport Club posted on its Facebook page: ‘We are very sad to announce the death of Tony Kenway who lost his life this morning. We would like to offer Tony’s family and friends our deepest sympathy and condolences at this difficult time. RIP Tony.’

Mr Kenway, originally from Southampton, has a Facebook profile which states he lived in Bangkok having previously lived in Marbella, Spain.

He had been married to his wife Pans since November 2011.

Mr Kenway’s sister, Kirsty Kenway, told MailOnline: ‘I don’t really know what happened to my brother. He had a brilliant life out there and he did a lot for charity and helped build some schools.

‘He had even met the future king of Thailand. He was very clever and did very well.’

A FCO spokeswoman said: ‘We are in contact with the family of a British man following his death in Pattaya, Thailand. Our sympathies are with them at this difficult time. We are in touch with the local police.’
