This is the heart-breaking picture of two Brazilian footballers before the Colombian air disaster - one who survived, and the second who died after making a telephone call to his wife from his hospital bed.

The above still is from a Snapchat video taken by Alan Ruschel, on the right, and his Chapecoense team-mate Danilo Padilha, who were telling fans:

“In not long, we’ll be arriving in Colombia. We’re coming Colombia.”

Thirty-one-year-old Danilo was pulled from the wreckage and taken to hospital, but died from his injuries a short time later. Before passing away, he spoke to his wife from hospital.

Weeks earlier, Danilo posted a picture of himself next to his wife who he described as “my love”.

Danilo Padilha was one of just seven survivors found in the wreckage of the jet, but later died in hospital.

Ruschel, 27, was also pulled alive from the wreckage - and pictures have emerged of the defender being treated at a Colombian hospital.

The plane crash that left debris scattered across the mountainside outside Medellin killed 75 people, with only six people who boarded the Bolivian Lamia plane thought to have survived.

Other survivors were named by officials as goalkeeper Jacson Follmann, defender Helio Hermito Zampier Neto and passengers Rafael Correa Gobbato and Ximena Suarez.

The aircraft was transporting the Brazilian first division Chapecoense football team when it suffered electrical problems about 10pm Monday and crashed into a mountainous area.

Colombia’s civil aviation authority has said the plane had been given priority to land but didn’t make it to the airport. 

The plane’s pilot, named on Tuesday as Miquel Quiroga, was said to have circled before the crash in a desperate attempt to burn off fuel and prevent an explosion on impact.

Chapecoense was traveling on a chartered flight to play Colombian club Atletico Nacional in the Copa Sudamericana final when the plane crashed.

In addition to the players, the plane was travelling with Chapecoense team officials, and journalists. These the names of all the passengers and crew.
