The body recovered from the wreckage of a crashed plane is that of Cardiff City player Emiliano Sala, Dorset Police have said Thursday.

Body recovered from plane wreckage confirmed to be footballer, Emiliano Sala

Sala, 28, was travelling to Cardiff in a plane piloted by David Ibbotson, which went missing over the English Channel on 21 January.

The Argentine’s body was recovered late on Wednesday after the wreckage was found on Sunday morning.

The Argentinean striker was flying to start his new life with Cardiff FC in the UK from Nantes in France after his £15million signing to Cardiff FC when the plane went down.

A coroner’s examination of the body established which of the two men’s body was found.
