For those of us from Belfast, this news came as a shock - Tommy Breslin has died suddenly at the age of 58. He was a legend at local club Cliftonville FC, playing as a midfielder for many years, and then managing them to Irish League titles in 2013 & 2014. My family would have known him well - my mother works with his sister, so it's come as a real shock to us.

Dorset Police have confirmed that the body recovered from a plane in the English Channel as Emilano Sala.

Footballer Emiliano Sala was exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide prior to a fatal plane crash in the English Channel, a report has revealed.

Sala, 28, and pilot David Ibbotson, 59, crashed on 21 January while travelling from Nantes in France to Cardiff.

Toxicology tests on Sala's body showed CO levels in his blood were so great it could have caused a seizure, unconsciousness or a heart attack.

The Sala family said there should be a detailed examination of the plane.

Still surreal what happened. Again thoughts go out to both families.
