Sala's body was recovered and formally identified earlier this week but David Ibbotson, who was flying the light aircraft, has not been found.

Argentine footballing idols Diego Maradona and Gabriel Batistuta also paid tribute to 28-year-old Sala.

Sala's disappearance sparked an outpouring of grief and a flood of cash to support a private hunt for the plane when the official search was initially called off.

After Sala's body was recovered, continued search efforts were called off due to adverse weather conditions, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch said.

The body was identified later.

Cardiff signed Sala for a record fee during the January window transfer from Nantes but never got a chance to kick a ball with the Premier League side.

French football star Kylian Mbappe has donated £27,000 to a fundraising appeal set up by the family of missing pilot David Ibbotson.

Southampton are planning to ban three fans for mocking the death of Emiliano Sala by making airplane gestures towards Cardiff City supporters.

"When something like this happens it brings all the football family together", he said.

Following Southampton's 2-1 defeat, the club said they were taking "an extremely firm stance" over the incident, which took place during the game.

The teams observed a minute's silcence pre-game, in what was Cardiff's first match since Emiliano Sala's death.

Southampton said they would work with Hampshire police to identify individuals who made indecent gestures towards Cardiff supporters.

Cardiff City issued a statement shortly after identification was confirmed, saying: "We offer our most heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family of Emiliano".

The visitors won via a stoppage-time victor from Kenneth Zohore and manager Neil Warnock said afterwards: 'We wanted to do it for Emiliano and I'm really proud the lads have done him justice'.
