In a heartbreaking turn of events a Brazilian footballer has been killed in a Colombian jet crash just one week after he found out he was going to be a father.

A chartered plane carrying one of Brazil’s top football teams Chapecoense has crashed into mountains in Columbia killing over 70 people.

The aircraft reportedly went down near the town of La Ceja, in a remote area of Colombia, after taking off from Bolivian airport amid reports of on board 'electrical problems'.

Among the dead was Chapecoense forward Tiago da Rocha Vieira, also known as Tiaguinho, who found out about his wife’s pregnancy just one week before the crash.
