Ghana Premier League giants Kumasi Asante Kotoko have confirmed the death of their former defender Godfred Yeboah alias TV 3.

Yeboah, 41, passed away after an illness on Tuesday in Sunyani.

"We're saddened to hear of the passing of Godfred Yeboah who represented us from 2001 to 2009," Kotoko confirmed on social media on Tuesday.

"His passion for the club was undeniable and he will be missed.

"We send our condolences to his family, friends and everyone who cherished him."

Yeboah won four caps for the Ghana national team including a 2006 Word Cup qualifier against DR Congo.

He played for one season with BA United before joining Asante Kotoko. Yeboah spent most of his career with Asante Kotoko, staying from 2001 till 2009. He won three league titles in the 2003, 2005 and 2007–08 seasons, and the Ghanaian FA Cup in 2001.

He moved from Asante Kotoko to All Stars F.C. on loan in January 2008, along with the Asante Kotoko teammate Kobina Dodzie, while a third player, Habib Mohamed, moved permanently.
