Former Côte d’Ivoire and Newcastle United midfielder, Cheick Tiote, died yesterday after collapsing during training with his current team, Beijing Enterprises in China.

The 30-year-old, who won the African Nations Cup in 2015 with his native Côte d’Ivoire, spent seven years in England with Newcastle United before moving to Beijing Enterprise in February.

Tributes from around the world have flown in from fellow players and fans alike.
