Tributes have been pouring to Ivory Coast and former Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote after his sudden death at the age of 30.

The Ivory Coast international suffered a heart attack during a training session with Chinese club Beijing Enterprise on Monday. It has also emerged that the partner of the father of three is expecting a baby in the coming weeks.

Alan Pardew managed Tiote for four years, and he said: 'From the moment I arrived at Newcastle, Cheick was a wonderful presence around the dressing room and his performances on the field often defied belief.

'None of us will ever forget that incredible day when we came from 4-0 down to draw an unbelievable game against Arsenal, with Cheick's incredible goal in the final moments one of the iconic moments in Premier League history.

'I loved him. Life is not fair sometimes and I will remember Cheick Tiote as a giant of a midfielder who I loved to managed. Rest in peace my friend.'
