The body of footballer Christian Atsu, who died after an earthquake hit Turkey two weeks ago, has been returned to his native Ghana.
The flight landed in Accra late on Sunday, and his coffin was carried away by members of Ghana’s armed forces.
Atsu was found dead on Saturday under his home in southern Turkey.
He had been playing for the Hatayspor club.
The winger played 65 times for Ghana’s national team and helped his side reach the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations final.
The 31-year-old also played for Premier League sides Everton and Newcastle.
Speaking at Kotoka airport in the capital Accra, Ghana’s Vice-President who promised Atsu a befitting burial, said the late footballer was much loved and would be sorely missed.
