“@paulpogba God bless your father. May he be with you in spirit. R.I.P,” a fan posted.

While a fourth added: “Stay strong @paulpogba Papa will always be watching, continue to make him proud, God got you.”

Fassou recently celebrated his 79th birthday, with Paul sharing a sweet picture on Instagram showing him presenting his dad with a cake, while in hospital.

Alongside the sweet snap, shared with his 14.9million followers, Wayne Rooney’s team mate admitted he felt “blessed” to be his son.

He always shared a close bond with his three sons, including the 24 year old, as well as Florentin and Mathias, who are also footballers.

Last year, he was spotted enjoying a family day out in the stands watching Paul take part in France’s Euro 2016 draw against Switzerland – with all three brothers wearing “Happy Father’s Day” t-shirts.
