Only just catching up with the news this evening. One of the most sad events I think I've heard in a long time. So many personal stories of tragedy that will probably reshape an entire community for ever.

Reminiscent of Munich in 1958 , not as close to home but just as tragic.

Virtually the whole Club has been wiped out, tragedy beyond words. The Columbian team they were on their way to play have asked that Chapecoense be awarded the Cup and Brazilian Clubs say they will loan players free of charge.

Very classy gesture from the Colombian club.
