Hundreds of people including Ghana’s president are paying their last respects to Christian Atsu, who died in last month’s earthquake in Turkey.
His funeral is being held outside State House in Ghana’s capital, Accra.
The late footballer’s widow and children are there, as are representatives of Ghana’s national team and Atsu’s Turkish club Hatayspor.
His body was recovered a fortnight after the quake from the rubble of his apartment building.
Atsu, 31, spent most of his career playing in the English premier league for clubs including Chelsea, Newcastle and Everton.
