Sister Of Chapecoense Goalkeeper Danilo Gets Tattoo As Tribute To Her Late Brother

The sister of Chapecoense goalkeeper Danilo, who was one of the 19 members of the club's first team who tragically lost their lives in last week's devastating plane crash, has paid tribute to her late brother by having a tattoo of him etched onto her back.

Seventy one people lost their lives on LaMia Flight 2933 a week ago with Danilo initially being pulled from the wreckage alive, but sadly passing away later in hospital. His sister, Daniele Padilha, has had the goalkeeper's name and shirt tattooed on her back, with the goalkeeper depicted wearing a halo above his head.

Translated from Portuguese, the message beneath the picture reads, "My angel forever in my history, in my memories, prayers, thoughts. Forever in my heart, marked on my body. Brother, eternal love, shirt number one."

Chapecoense have been honoured by CONMEBOL this week by being awarded the Copa Sudamerica, the final of which they never got to compete in due to last week's tragedy in Medellin, Colombia. The club have also received the $2m prize money from the tournament and have qualified for next season's Copa Libertadores as a result.
