  • Fiorentina's supporters burn flares as the coffin of Fiorentina's captain Davide Astori is carried out of Santa Croce basilica at the end of the funeral in Florence

Balotelli attended the ceremony along with Marco van Basten, Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti, Javier Zanetti, and former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

"In the world every day thousands of children who do not receive much attention die of hunger and they are just as important".

The Italy global defender died at the age of 31 on Saturday after a sudden illness.

Speaking after Juve's Champions League victory, Chiellini said: "We dedicate the win to him. I cry many times, I always believe in him because he was a fantastic player", he said. You are not like everyone else, you are the one that even if you do not know the languages well you managed to talk to all of us, talking with the heart and keeping us united.

"If we go to London with the spirit we showed in the second half, then we can get a result. We would like to continue to smile in our heart". On Sunday Buffon addressed the infant in an eloquent Instagram post saying that she "deserves to know that her father was in all respects a ideal person, a great flawless person".

It also is increasing community outreach efforts to nursing homes to help address prescription opioid addiction among the elderly. Despite efforts to address the crisis , opioid overdoses in the USA continue to increase at a disturbing rate.

Fiorentina and Cagliari, Astori's club between 2008 and 2016, both retired the number 13 shirt in honour of their former player, who won 14 caps for Italy during his career.

Astori leaves a wife and a two-year-old daughter. One that people have left behind, and which was governed by values like altruism, elegance, politeness and respect toward others.

"Genuine compliments, you were one of the best sporting figures I ever came up against".

Fiorentina and Cagliari will retire the number 13 shirt worn by defender Davide Astori after the Italy global died of a sudden illness over the weekend at the age of 31.

Fiorentina captain Astori died suddenly over the weekend, prompting PSG defender Alves to make what have widely been branded as insensitive comments. Before the match, he said he was proud and happy for me and my new adventure with Milan.
