"We are supporting Serge at this difficult time," Tottenham said in a statement.

The club also published a message of support on social media.

 

When emergency services arrived, 26-year-old Christopher Aurier was injured in the abdomen after being shot outside a club in the Thibaud district of the city.

He later died in hospital, the fire service said.

However, while Serge won league titles with Paris Saint-Germain and the Africa Cup of Nations with the Cote d'Ivoire national side, Christopher's career was less successful.

He turned out for several amateur clubs in France and Belgium before lining up for Rodeo Toulouse in the fifth tier of French football.
