Memorial Service Held For Cheick Tiote By Teammates In China (Photos) by Stevebamdex(m): 3:37pm On Jun 13, 2017
Memorial service for Cheick Tiote has been held in Beijing following his tragic cardiac arrest last week.
The former Newcastle star, who was just 30, collapsed during training for Chinese second division side Beijing Enterprises last week and died after being rushed to hospital.

Beijing Enterprises players bow their heads in tribute to former team-mate Cheick Tiote

Tributes flooded in from his former team-mates, celebrities and and football supporters following the terrible news.

And in the Chinese capital, his Beijing Enterprises team-mates stood around a coffin draped in the flag of the Ivory Coast with their heads bowed in respect, before his body was flown back to his native Ivory Coast.

Tears were shed by family and friends at the emotional service for the father of three, who played over 100 games in the Premier League for the Toon before moving to Asia.

Tiote was just 30 when he tragically passed away from a cardiac arrest last week
Many of these players surrounded Tiote - who was reportedly expecting a fourth child - and tried to assist with the first-aid efforts to revive him at the training complex.

One of those present, defender Jin Hui, wrote in a post on social media platform WeChat Moments: “He just collapsed right in front of me. I still cannot believe this.”

The service was attended by a tearful Papiss Cisse, a former team-mate at Newcastle who currently plays his football in China for Shandong Luneng.

Other former team-mates flew out following his death last Monday, as did his agent Emanuele Palladino.

Family members of Tiote in tears after his untimely passing
Fans outside carried a banner saying "RIP" with Tiote's face and chanted his name, while soldiers saluted the fallen footballer.

Last week members of an official fan club visited the Beijing side’s stadium to lay flowers on the pitch in a brief ceremony.

Tiote only moved to China in February having left Newcastle, playing a handful of games.

"We are in pain and very, very sad to see him die at such a young age. There would definitely be a silent tribute."

I hope this serves as deterrent to others who play intensive football when fasting.

May his soul rest in peace

But he was Muslim, shouldn't he have been buried already?

Death though very painful and sad can be well tushed that the emotional pains of a loved one becomes heightened with a savor or glamor.
