Over a thousand fans and some twenty international teammates were present at Abidjan airport on Thursday to pay their respects as the body of football star Cheick Tiote, who died in China earlier this month aged 30, was brought home.

Family members and fans could not contain their grief as Tiote’s coffin was carried through the airport.
