Former Arsenal and Real Madrid star Jose Antonio Reyes has died in a car crash at the age of 35.
He was with 23-year-old cousin and another man when the vehicle they were travelling in overturned and burst into flames in Utrera, the town where Reyes was born, just outside Seville.
He was reportedly on his way home to his wife and three children after training, having not been picked by current club Extremadura to play against Cádiz tomorrow, according to Spanish media.
Spanish police said they believe Reyes was driving his Mercedes Brabus S550V at 120 miles per hour – some 50mph over the speed limit on the A-376 motorway near Alcala de Guadaira, outside Seville.
The car was completely burned out after it crashed from the motorway and ended up on its roof.
Reyes holds the record for the player with the most Europa League titles. He won the competition twice with Atletico and three times with Sevilla.
Tributes have already started pouring in for José Antonio Reyes after the news that the former Arsenal, Sevilla and Spain forward has died in a car accident at the age of 35.
