Four players and the president of Brazilian club Palmas died in a plane crash in the northern state of Tocantins on Sunday.
The accident occurred when the plane suddenly plunged to the ground at the end of the runway while on take-off, the club reported in a statement.
The victims were identified as president Lucas Meira and players Lucas Praxedes, Guilherme Noe, Ranule and Marcus Molinari, as well as the pilot. There were no survivors.
They were on their way to the central region of Goiania to play a cup match against Vila Nova, and were traveling separately to the rest of the team because they had tested positive for Covid-19.
The cause of the accident was not immediately known.
