Unlucky Aubameyang unable to suit up for awards

Borussia Dortmund and Gabon star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wore a t-shirt and cap to the African Player of the Year Awards after a slice of bad luck.

Aubameyang finished as runner-up to Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez for the prestigious award, with Liverpool's Sadio Mane third.

On stage, Mane and Mahrez wore suits as Aubameyang stood by in a red t-shirt and cap.

But it appears the 27-year-old was not to blame after his baggage was lost in travel.
