Finally, we arrive at the Toure siblings who enjoyed prestigious playing careers in their own rights.

As the elder sibling, Kolo was the first to emerge in Europe at Arsenal and formed part of the club’s legendary ‘Invincibles’ that went the entire 2003/04 Premier League season unbeaten.

Kolo eventually joined Manchester City in 2009, with Yaya arriving a year later from Barcelona. Together, the pair won the Premier League title in 2011 – no doubt the finest moment in their family history.

Yaya went on to become a four-time African Player of the Year winner, while Kolo works as a coach under Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers and for the Ivory Coast in 2020.
