A close friend of Mario Balotelli was found dead by police and paramedics in London at two in the morning earlier today.

Mayowa Ogunbayo, 29, was found dead in his room early in the morning and it was later found through a post-mortem that a stab in the heart was the cause for his death.

Ogunbayo wasn’t just close friends with former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, but was also known to be very close to former Newcaste United star Obafemi Martins too.

The British police authorities have failed to rule this out as a murder or a suicide and investigations to find more about the incident are under way.

It has also been reported that a 21-year-old girl, who was present at the venue of the death, was arrested on the arrival of the police early in the morning. The girl was initially arrested on suspicion of murder, but was later released on bail.
