Shocking news came from China last night, as former Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote was announced dead.


The 30-year old died after collapsing in training. 

He was most famously known for scoring Newcastle United’s fourth goal in a 4-4 draw against Arsenal, after having been down 4-0 at halftime.


Tributes for the Ivorian poured onto social media from former teammates and coaches.







Our thoughts and prayers are with Cheick’s family and friends.
