Tributes have been paid to former Gabon international Moise Brou Apanga who died on Wednesday from a suspected heart attack.
The 35-year-old collapsed during a training session with his Gabonese club FC 105 Libreville.
He played for the Panthers at the Africa Cup of Nations in 2010 and 2012.
“We played together, we played against each other but it was always a pleasure to play alongside you,” Gabon captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang posted.
“Rest in peace my brother.”
The Gabon Football Federation (Fegafoot) announced the news and also paid their own tribute.
“The country has lost a brave son who has always given his best for the Gabonese flag,” Fegafoot wrote.
“All our condolences to his family and team-mates.”
Sunderland and Gabon midfielder Didier Ndong also paid tribute to Brou Apanga on social media.
