Christian Atsu body flown to Ghana for burial

The remains of the late Ghanaian player, Christian Atsu has been flown to Ghana from Turkey via Turkish airline.

Atsu reportedly died in the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked Turkey on February 5.

The 31-year-old ex-Newcastle and Chelsea player was found dead under the rubble 12 days after the incident took place.

He was earlier reported found but later discovered that he was still held under the rubble.

Atsu had been scheduled to fly out of the country hours before the quake struck at 4am local time.

But he reportedly cancelled his Ghana flight to stay with teammates after scoring the dramatic game-winning goal in a Super Lig match the day before the incident occured.
