Footballer Cheick Tiote, who collapsed and died during a training session with his Chinese club last week’s remains has arrived in his home country Ivory Coast for burial.

The body of the Beijing Enterprises midfielder flown back to his home country from China where he tragically passed away arrived on Thursday afternoon at Port Bouet Airport in Abidjan, the Ivorian capital and was received by hundreds of people, including former Elephants coach and teammates Herve Renard, Kolo Toure, Gervinho, Tiene and Wilfred Bony who was among the pallbearers carrying the coffin containing Cheick Tiote’s body when it arrived.

According to BBC Sports, Tiote’s family wants the late player to be buried in his hometown Yamoussoukro but the Ivory Coast’s Football Federation prefers Abidjan.
