Former Ghanian attacker and Nottingham Forest forward, Junior Agogo has died in a London hospital at the age of 40.

Though the cause of his death is yet to be known, Agogo suffered from a stroke in 2015 and had to battle public stigma during his recovery.

The ex-Ghana international had several stints across England, USA, Egypt and his last competitive outing was at Hibernian back in 2012.

He was a standout player for Ghana at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations on home soil where he scored three goals in six outings as the Black Stars settled for third-place.

His notable contribution during the continental competition was his late match-winning effort that gave Ghana a 2-1 win over arch-rivals Nigeria.

Agogo made his international debut for the West African country in 2006 and he went on to score 12 goals in 27 international appearances.

Prior to his death, the former Sheffield Wednesday and Bristol Rovers attacker went into the fitness training business in England.
