Football stars across Italy and Europe have stormed the city of Florence for the burial service of Davide Astori, the Fiorentina captain who was found dead in his hotel room on Sunday.

The Italian international was found hours before his team were scheduled to play Udinese in a Serie A match.

And on Thursday, his colleagues were seen touching down at the Santa Croce church in Florence ahead of the funeral service, which started at 10 am in Italy, while hundreds of thousand fans lined the city of Florence and filled the main squares some arriving sooner than required as three hours before the memorial service began.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri said earlier this week: "Now I think it's time for silence, the thought must go to the family and especially to the little daughter who will not know her father.

"Davide will always be with me. We grew up football together, it's a huge disappointment. "

Anytime I see something like this, I have a sober reflection about life. What is actually our mission in life? Vanity upon vanity.

I never met him neither did I know him when he was alive. But the pictures say more.

Always be mindful of what would be said about you after your demise. It is a debt we all must pay.

R.I.P DAVIDE ASTORI.

Its barely a week dis dude died and he has bin buried, even with his wealth its was just a mere ceremony..

My southern brothers will be carrying burial ceremony on their head anyhow.

Down here, some of us sell properties to burry, some even borrow to do burial.

Its a pity.

RIP Astori
