How to change image to previous state if other row is selected in TableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath function?

So I have dynamic tableview and each row have play image. If I select the row image will change to pause icon. But what if I select another row, I need the image on previously selected row to have play icon again.
How to handle such functionality?

All I have is

class ViewController: UIViewController {
var isPlaying = false

func playRadioStation() {
if !isPlaying {
isPlaying = true
//image.image = UIImage(named: "cellPause")
else {
isPlaying = false
// image.image = UIImage(named: "cellPlay")
func playSelectedStation(indexPath: NSIndexPath) {
let url = NSURL(string: stations[indexPath.row].urlString)!
avPlayer = AVPlayer(URL: url)

func tableView(tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath) -> UITableViewCell {
let cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier("cell") as! RadioTableViewCell
cell.playPause.image = isPlaying ? UIImage(named: "cellPause") : UIImage(named: "cellPlay")
return cell

func tableView(tableView: UITableView, didSelectRowAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath) {

switch indexPath.row {
case 0:
playRadioStation(indexPath, image: cell.playPause)
case 1:
playRadioStation(indexPath, image: cell.playPause)
print("nothing here")

Radio Stations are changing without problem, having issue only with play/pause icon state


You can achieve it by going through visible cells and disable play button in all of them except the one the user has just tapped on:

 class RadioTableViewCell {

    // your code ....

    func setup(playbackEnabled playbackEnabled: Bool) {
        image = playbackEnabled ? UIImage(named: "cellPause") : UIImage(named: "cellPlay")
        // additional setup here

And then in your tableview delegate:

func tableView(tableView: UITableView, didSelectRowAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath) {

    let selectedCell = tableView.cellForRowAtIndexPath(indexPath) as! RadioTableViewCell

    for cell in tableView.visibleCells {
        let visibleCell = cell as? RadioTableViewCell
        visibleCell.setup(playbackEnabled: visibleCell == selectedCell)
