Newcastle United fans will remember this outrageous volley from Cheick Tiote
Tiote was taken ill during training with his Chinese Super League side Beijing Enterprises, and was rushed to hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead.
The Ivorian midfielder spent seven seasons with Newcastle United after joining from FC Twente for £3.5m in 2010, but only managed one goal for the Magpies.
However, it was an absolute rocket as the home side snatched a point in the 87th minute against Arsenal, having been 4-0 down at half-time.
The strike ensured cult hero status for Tiote at St James’ Park, and fans have been reminiscing about such a pure hit after the tragic news of Tiote’s death.
