According to Alanyaspor's chairman Hasan Çavuşoğlu, the bus had two drivers and both fell asleep.

"According to information I received from our police chief, despite there being two drivers on the vehicle, they were both asleep," Çavuşoğlu said.

"The crash happened as a result of them both being asleep."

The two drivers have been detained by police and an investigation into the incident has been launched.

Ex-Spurs defender Steven Caulker and former Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse were also on board the bus which crashed.

Caulker is "safe, but badly shaken up" following the tragic ordeal in the early hours of Monday morning, per Mirror.

Sural only joined Alanyaspor from Sparta Prague in January. He earned 20 international caps, scoring once for his country.

Rest in peace, Sural.
