Former Hearts of Oak captain Jonathan Kpakpo Oti Ankrah is reported dead in the United States of America after contracting coronavirus.

Ankrah, 84, passed away on Wednesday night in Silver Spring, Maryland after weeks on admission at the hospital's Internal Care Unit (ICU)

Nicknamed Joe Dakota, he captained Hearts of Oak for very long time and played as a defender.

He succeeded Charles Addo Odametey in central defence from late 1960 to the early part of 1970.

The powerful defender relocated to the United States after his career together with the likes of the late Alhaji Hearts.
