A married Premier League footballer who already has three children by his wife and mistress has married a second bride in his native Ivory Coast.

Cheick Tiote, 28, who plays for Newcastle United, reportedly wed Laeticia Doukrou in a traditional ceremony earlier this month.

According to the Mail Online the news of the second wedding came as a surprise to his first wife, Madah, 25, who is said to have only found out about it on Facebook.

Madah, who lives with Tiote and their two children in a £1.5million house in a village outside Newcastle, reportedly fainted with shock when she saw the photographs of her husband marrying another woman.

The midfielder, who earns £45,000 a week, also has a one-year-old child with mistress, 33-year-old Zimbabwean Nkosiphile Mpofu, known as Nikki.

The footballer is also said to have insisted to friends that having several partners is commonplace in his native Ivory Coast.

A source told The Sun: "He doesn't see a problem with having two wives.

"It's perfectly acceptable in his culture. He doesn't see he has done anything wrong and doesn't know what the fuss is all about."
