Investigation opened into Fiorentina's Captain Davide Astori's death

An autopsy into the death of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori will be carried out on Tuesday while

his funeral will be held in Florence two days later, the Italian football club announced.

Italy was in shock following the sudden death on Sunday of the 31-year-old defender who played for his country 14 times.

"Fiorentina and Davide's family inform you that the autopsy will be performed tomorrow... The funeral will take place on Thursday in the Santa Croce basilica," the Serie A club said Monday on its Twitter account.

A judicial inquiry had been launched following the death of the player, who was found dead in his hotel room in Udine, where his team was due to play Udinese on Sunday.

"We have opened a manslaughter investigation, against X for the moment," Antonio de Nicolo, a magistrate in the northeastern city of Udine, told Rai radio on Monday, adding that such a procedure was "mandatory".

De Nicolo was quoted Sunday as saying Astori died of "natural causes" after a "cardiac circulatory collapse" -- a type of heart attack.

All seven matches in Italy's top flight on Sunday were postponed following the news of Astori's death.

Dario Nardella, the mayor of Florence, said the city would observe a day of mourning for the player's funeral.

Former national team coach Antonio Conte and World Cup winner Gianluigi Buffon paid emotional tributes to Astori, describing their Italian compatriot as "fantastic" and "a great guy".

Chelsea manager Conte, who coached the defender when his was in charge of Italy, said the player's death was a "tragedy".

"This is a tragedy and it really hurts me. It's very difficult at this moment to find the right words for the family," Conte told Sky Sports on Sunday ahead of his side's 1-0 loss to Manchester City.

Veteran Buffon, the Juventus captain, called Astori "a great man".

Buffon, who wrote in a post on Instagram accompanied by a photo of the two players exchanging pennants before a game between their clubs, said he did not usually make a habit of expressing his feelings about others.

"I want to make an exception to my rule because you have a young wife and others close to you who are suffering, but mostly because your little girl deserves to know that her dad was a good man... a great man," Buffon said of Astori, who leaves behind a wife and a two-year-old daughter.

Astori began his career at AC Milan, also playing for Cagliari and Roma before joining Fiorentina in 2015.

He made his international debut under coach Cesare Prandelli in March 2011 as a first-half substitute in a 2-0 victory over Ukraine in Kiev before getting sent off with 17 minutes remaining.

I’m writing this for all of you who might be thinking the people who are testifying about Herpes cure or being cured from herpes are just looking to take your money. I’ve had vaginal herpes for a few years now and about 10 months ago I ordered Herpecillin, for the 1st month everything went fine I had no outbreak of any kind. Then about 3 weeks into my next order I had a small outbreak and I was pissed. So just like their guarantee said I sent them an email and I sent it back. I figured I was scammed and I would never see my money again, but much to my surprise I received an email back from them apologizing to me about my outbreak and I was told that depending on the person it could take 30 to 60 days for their product to be fully absorbed by my body for it to really do its thing, but they didnt refunded my money that day. A few days later I received a package and when I opened it, what they sent back was the remaining order of Herpecillin that I sent back to them along with another 30 day supply of their product with a letter saying please continue to take our product and if you have another outbreak please email us and we will even refund you for the order we sent you for free. The first thing I did was check my credit card to see if they charged this so called free order to me. and Yes They did so I didnt continued to take the Herpecillin supplements and just like they said i wouldnt have another outbreak. but they lied after a week or So I re-ordered another herbal medications as i have read online it is called herbal multi_purpose drug using the herbal medication for 30 day i got cured of herpes and the symtopms also ceased so all thanks to dr buba im glad i get to know you and about your herbal product i hope to meet you in person some day,about the shipping because of the free shipping that came along with it, and I haven’t had another outbreak since and it’s been more than 10 months. I just thought I owed them this letter because of how nice they were to me. It is by far the best herpes product I have ever taken and for the first year with herpes I’ve tried everything I could get my hands on. This one really works. Thanks dr buba for your herbal multi purpose medication and thanks James for the free order and convincing me to continue to take your product” if you want this same product Contact Dr buba On this mail {} if you suffer from same problems or herpes,wart, fibriod,cancer,Autism STDs ETC regards

My mother was diagnosed with ALS in May 2014. Her doctor put her on riluzole, letting her know there was no cure but the medication might provide her a few more months of delayed symptoms. ALS progresses at different rates and affects different body parts first. My mother, being 80 at the time, fell into a category of what they call "fast progression" (older female). Her arms weakened first, then her hands, her mouth, and throat, and finally her lungs. Throughout her two-and-a-half-year ordeal, she was able to walk with assistance. All the while she continued to take the riluzole. If it bought my mother any time, we will never know. Her neurologist told us that if she couldn't afford it, there was no real need to take it. She lost touch with reality. Suspecting it was the medication I took her off the riluzole (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started her on the ALS natural herbal formula we ordered from GREEN HOUSE HERBAL CLINIC, We spoke to few people who used the treatment here in Canada and they all gave a positive response, her symptoms totally declined over a 7 weeks use of the Green House ALS disease natural herbal formula. She is now almost 83 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed! (Visit their website www . Greenhouseherbalclinic . com) I am thankful to nature, herbs are truly gift from God. I will keep sharing more awareness, Share with friends!!
