The body recovered from the plane wreckage at the bottom of the English Channel has been confirmed as Emiliano Sala.
Dorset Police confirmed last night that the body was that of the Argentinean striker who 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.
Meanwhile, pilot David Ibbotson’s family are still waiting for him to be found. Friends and relatives of the pilot’s wife Nora said she was ‘beside herself’ waiting to hear whether or not he had been found.
