Manchester City Player, Yaya Toure, and his agent to donate £100,000 to Victims of Manchester arena attack

Twenty-two people were killed and 64 injured when Manchester arena was attacked by named Bomber Salman Abedi on Monday evening.

Toure's representative Dimitri Seluk told BBC Sport: "We want to help the victims - the families of the dead or those who are now in hospital.

"I spoke to Yaya on Tuesday and he was very shocked by the terrible news."

Seluk added: "We have arranged with the Manchester Evening News to help us get the money to the people who really need it.

"We don't want to send it somewhere and nobody knows where it will end up - we want to make sure it goes to people for whom every penny helps.

"I think it will take a few days to organise it, but Yaya is in England and can come and present the cheque whenever it is needed".
