      Six reported survivors.

      So sad, this.

      Edit - Must also point out that I think that's a very misleading headline by the BBC.

      This is so terribly sad. Apparently the police has confirmed only 5 survivors, which would mean about 76 dead. Tragic. Very saddened with those news. Chape were on the way to make history, their best season ever. My heart goes out to the families of all the players and other individuals who were on the plane, and also to all Chapecoense fans. #ForçaChape

      I'm at class but can't pay attention. I constantly feel like crying. A former Flamengo manager and a few former Flamengo players among the victims - not that it matters who they ever played for, but it hits home with much greater strength just how tragic it is. May they rest in peace.

      Apparently Atletico Nacional have asked Conmebol to award the title to Chapecoense.

      Not sure if it's true at this point but it would be a class gesture from them.

      Atletico Nacional have officially requested the title to be awarded to Chapecoense, as a tribute to those who passed away on the accident. Furthermore, their players asked the prize money to be given to the families of the victims.

      I am speechless at this beautiful attitude. Well done Atletico, the greatest club in South America this year, in every sense.

      Absolutely, just read that the managers son was meant to be on the plane as well but turned up at the airport and had forgotten his passport... 

      Life is very brittle, thought's with all those left behind with the grief. Such a tragedy

      Ronaldo has donated €3m to the team and the families of those who lost their lives. Incredibly nice gesture!

      Atletico Nacional fans singing something to the lines of "Let them hear it in all of the continent, we'll always remember the champions Chapecoense"

      Such an awful tragedy.

      The response from Atletico Nacional has been nothing short of first class.

      Thoughts with the fans, friends and families of those affected. Especially the lads who stayed back home rather than travel with their team. Can't imagine what they're going through right now.

      Força Chape!

      Those are Atletico Nacional fans just now at their stadium in Medellin, singing Chape's song:

      Broadcast live from the stadium: https://www.facebook.com/telemedellin.tv/videos/10153942581911143/

      It's packed and they've had to turn people away from the stadium as there's no more room

      Atletico Nacional's stadium fully packed and over 120k people outside. I've been moved to tears more than often watching this.

      It's the most beautiful moment I've ever seen in sports. In the face of tragedy, football has shown its best.

      Muchas gracias, Colombia!
