Former Newcastle goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek's funeral will take place in the Czech Republic on Monday.

Srnicek died on Tuesday at the age of 47 after the decision was taken to switch off his life support machine.

The 49-times-capped Czech Republic international had been in an induced coma since suffering a cardiac arrest while out running in his home town of Ostrava before Christmas.
