Reports filtering through are confirming that a player has died after being hit by an object as he left the field of play at the sounding of the final whistle.

The player in question is the Cameroonian Albert Ebosse who has died after being hit with an object following a game in Algeria.

Ebosse, a mere 24 years of age, was declared dead after arriving in hospital in Tizi Ouzou. Playing for JS Kabylie, the striker had scored his sides goal in the fixture with USM Alger and was hit with what was believed to be a rock when the sides left the pitch.

On a Sunday morning that is not the kind of news we like to be reading and I`m mystified as to what is becoming of the world we currently live in.

Our thoughts are with the players` family, friends and team-mates – RIP.
