Footballer dedicates FIFA Award to his Mother

Togolese footballer, Francis Kone has dedicated his FIFA Fair Play Award, which he received on Monday to his mother Akoudji.

He  was honoured for preventing opponent Martin Berkovec from swallowing his tongue during a Czech league game earlier this year.

"I love my mother so much and this trophy belongs to her," Kone, a striker who was playing for Slovacko at the time, told BBC Sport.

"She is the greatest gift I have been given in all my life. I thank my mother and my family - who are celebrating - and all those people who support me in what I'm doing."
