EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR has paid tribute to those who were killed and injured during the Togo team bus attack on the anniversary of the atrocity.
The 33-year-old shared a set of images of himself mourning after the massacre – eight years on from the incident.

Speaking exclusively to Sunsport last January, Adebayor admitted the attack was hard to get over.
He said: “It was hard to bounce back after that”.
“I thought a lot about what had happened and I knew I could have been killed. But after a year or so I knew I had to move on and stop dwelling on the attack so I said to myself ‘you are still alive, so you have to keep working and enjoying yourself’ — and I have done that quite well”.
