share on:

Yaya and Kolo Toure have been told their brother Toure Oyala Ibrahim has died while the Ivory Coast duo are on World Cup duty in Brazil.

The Manchester City and Liverpool stars’ brother passed away at the age of 28 on Thursday in Manchester after battling with cancer – just hours after the pair were in the squad for Ivory Coast’s 2-1 loss to Colombia.

The Ivorian FA have offered support to Yaya and Kolo, as the Group C side ‘ask Ivorians for their prayers’ during the difficult period.
