Separate images show him posing for selfies with fellow footballer, Alan Ruschel, 27, during the journey from Brazil with Ruschel telling fans: “We’re coming Colombia.”

Accordingto reports, Ruschel was pulled alive from the wreckage along with goalkeeper Jacson Follmann, defender Helio Hermito Zampier Neto and passengers, Rafael Correa Gobbato and Ximena Suarez.

Rescuers have started the grim task of removing bodies from the crash site as it emerged the pilot circled in a desperate attempt to burn off fuel before attempting to land.

The chartered plane carrying the Brazilian football team, crashed outside Medellin killing 76 and leaving just six survivors – three of them players.
