Cheick Tioté, who tragically died on Monday at the age of 30, joined Newcastle United from FC Twente in August 2010 and spent almost seven years at St. James' Park.

A hard-tackling, combative midfielder, he trained how he played - but off the pitch he was humble and somewhat shy, and rarely seen without a smile on his face.

He'll always be remembered for his stunning goal against Arsenal in February 2011, but he was responsible for many more magic moments, too.

Here, we take a pictorial look through Tioté's time on Tyneside.
