The news arrived on Monday and left the world of football in shock, as it was announced Tiote had tragically passed away at the age of 30, following a heart attack whilst training for his new club in China.
The news has not only left the whole of Newcastle United in mourning, but the entire footballing world, with tributes coming in from around the globe from all who knew him.
Cheick was a fierce competitor, had the heart of a lion on the pitch and was an avid trainer off it.
He died doing the thing he loved and will live long in the memory of us all here at Newcastle United.
