Football stars from across Italian football and beyond have stormed Florence for the funeral of Davide Astori, the Fiorentina captain who was found dead in his hotel room on Sunday. The Italy international was discovered hours before his team were scheduled to play Udinese in a Serie A match.
They applauded loudly as Astori's coffin was driven past Fiorentina's Artemio Franchi stadium. There were shouts of his name and 'grande capitano' (great captain) and a banner held up read: 'Per sempre nostro capitano (forever our captain)'.
