Newcastle students stop traffic for 10 MINUTES with Yaya and Kolo Toure chant

Siblings, Yaya and Kolo Toure received one of the warmest tributes in Newcastle as fans brought the city to a standstill in honor of the two Ivorian internationals. Just right after after England qualified for the World Cup, dozens of students practically stopped traffic for 10 minutes as they took to the streets at 3am to sing Manchester City's famous chant about Yaya and his brother Kolo.

In recent months, the streets of Magaluf, Madrid and Sligo in Ireland have all been brought to a halt the by the song made famous by Manchester City fans,  it is actually the tune of 2 Unlimited's smash hit, 'No Limit', which topped the UK charts in 1993. However, in the early hours of Wednesday morning the chant made its way to the North East as a number of students poured out of bars and nightclubs in the area to give their own rendition to the Manchester City skipper and his brother.

Although the partnership of both brothers came to an end recently when Kolo moved to Liverpool after his contract with the English side expired in the summer; the anthem has always been in the works for the Ivorian brothers.
