Ghanaians have been thrown in the state of mourning following the death of former striker Junior Agogo.
The Former Zamalek forward passed on in the early hours of Thursday 22nd August, 2019 in London at the age of 40.
Agogo was hospitalized in 2015 after suffering stroke which debilitated him.
He will be remembered for his eye-catching performances for the Black Stars during the 2008 Nations Cup on home soil.
Asamoah Gyan was particularly stung by Agogo’s death; “Gutted..Thanks for the memories JUNIOR💔💔💔 R.I.P bro” he tweeted.
Other high-profile names and celebrities also took to Twitter to join in the mourning.
I remember landing in Addis Ababa in early 2008.
Any time I told anyone I was from Gnana, the first thing they would say was "Agogo!"
Junior Agogo was a great ambassador for the Black Stars and by extension Ghana.
May his soul rest in peace.https://t.co/RmddC2smLh
