    Ok I know this is a site primarily used by North Americans but I know theirs lots of football fans (soccer) on here so thought to mention it.

    Cheick Tiote the former Newcastle United player collapsed during training and died today. Tiote had played for Newcastle United from 2010 until he moved to Beijing Enterprises in February this year. He scored the final and equalising goal in what is often described as the Premier Leagues greatest comeback when Newcastle United came from 4-0 down against Arsenal to draw 4-4. As a Newcastle United fan myself I will always cherish him for that moment.

    Rest in peace Tiote.

    Sad, he was only 30 years old. That is way too young to die.

    Awful. He was a fantastic player for Newcastle. He leaves a wife and young family behind. So heartbreaking.
