´Today, the world cries´ – Neymar mourns Chapecoense victims

Brazil and Barcelona star Neymar has led tributes to the victims and survivors of the plane crash involving Chapecoense.

Authorities have confirmed 76 people died when the flight crashed en route from Bolivia to Colombia on Monday. Five others are believed to have survived.

A delegation of players and staff from Chapecoense, as well as journalists reporting on the team, were on board.

The Brazilian Serie A side had been scheduled to play the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional at Medellin’s Estadio Atanasio Girardot on Wednesday. 

Neymar, Brazil’s biggest star, was among a host of football players and teams to express their sadness as news of the incident emerged.

“Impossible to believe in this tragedy, impossible to believe in the event, impossible to believe that the plane crashed, impossible to believe that athletes, humans were on this plane, impossible to believe that these people left their families…,” he wrote in a post on his Instagram account.

“Today the world cries, but heaven rejoices in receiving champions. My feelings [go out] to all [the victims’] family and friends,” he wrote in a post on his Instagram account.”
