Tottenham have confirmed that Serge Aurier's brother has died after he was shot in the early hours of Monday morning.

Christopher Aurier was shot outside a nightclub in Toulose, according to French outlet Europe1.

Spurs confirmed the news in a statement: "The Club is deeply saddened to confirm media reports that Serge Aurier’s brother passed away in the early hours of this morning.

"Everybody at the Club sends their sincerest condolences to Serge and his family. Our thoughts are with them all."

The incident took place at around 5am on Monday morning and Christopher was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Europe 1 claim local residents called the police after finding the 26-year-old on the ground and it's been reported the killer fled the scene and is still on the run.

Christopher was also a footballer and was most recently on the books with French fifth-tier club Toulouse Rodeo.

Christopher had a trial with Brentford back in 2011 and also had a trial at Stalybridge.

The incident occurred just hours after Serge had featured in Tottenham's 2-1 win over Arsenal in the north London derby.
