The family of a football coach and former Leicester Nirvana FC player, who was killed in a street attack on Thursday, have described him as a positive role model.

Speaking on behalf of Antoin Akpom's family, his uncle Ronny Akpom said he was a loving and devoted father who was a credit to the community.

"An innocent life has been lost," he said. "The family calls for everyone to remain calm and united and to assist the police with their inquiry, so that the people who did this will be brought to justice."
