Powerful images show distraught fans of the Brazilian football team killed in a plane crash remembering their heroes.
Thousands of fans young and old took to the streets of Chapeco in southern Brazil, with many wearing Chapecoense’s green shirts, and one woman holding a sign with a picture of the team and the words ‘eternal champions’.
They were paying tribute to the 71 people that were killed when the aircraft taking the team to Colombia for a cup final crash-landed.
Six people survived the plane crash, Colombian officials confirmed, and four people that should have been on the flight never boarded.
The sombre mood of supporters back home reflected the sorrow of football fans across the world in the wake of the horrific crash.
Hordes of people surrounded a church in Chapeco, while others made their way inside for a service in memory of the team.
Emotional photos show people inside the church holding hands, while another image shows them praying.
In one image, a young boy wearing the team’s full kit and goalie gloves looks blankly into the distance as he sits on a man’s shoulders.
The scenes of shock and sadness mirrored those across the football world, with Liverpool players wearing black armbands for their match against Leeds United this evening.
Chapecoense had risen from relative obscurity to make it to the Copa Sudamericana final, where they were due to play Colombian side Atletico Nacional.
