Former Arsenal and Bournemouth striker, who now plays for Stoke City, Benik Afobe announced that himself and his wife are “devastated and heartbroken” after his two-year-old daughter Amora died on Friday.

Benik Afobe in a statement released on Sunday, said:

“Amora was taken to hospital for treatment after unexpectedly developing a severe infection,” it said.

“Unfortunately she then suffered a number of serious complications and, despite doctors doing absolutely everything that they could, Amora passed away peacefully with the love of her family by her side.

“The entire family have been left totally devastated and heartbroken, and would like to ask that their privacy is respected at this incredibly difficult time.”

Bristol City have dedicated their 5-2 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday to Afobe.

Stoke showed support to Afobe saying:

“The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Stoke City are with Benik Afobe following this morning’s tragic news.

“We’ll be with you, Benik.”

His former club Wolverhampton Wanderers also sent a message of support, tweeting: “Our hearts break for Benik Afobe and his family following the tragic news of his daughter’s passing this weekend.

“The Wolves family are with you, Benik.”

Afobe’s former Arsenal team-mate Jack Wilshere said: “Benik, my brother, my words will never mean enough to express how deeply sorry I am for your loss, and I know that no words will heal the pain in your hearts right now, just know I am here for you, Lois and your family always.

“Amora’s infectious smile will live on in our hearts forever. I love you my friend. Stay strong.”
