As more information comes out relating to the death of Cardiff City player Emiliano Sala, coroners have confirmed the cause of death on Monday as injuries to the head and torso.

The club's record signing went missing on a flight over the English Channel in late January, and after a private search effort located the wreckage, a body was recovered and identified as that of the 28-year-old on Thursday.

More information over the cause of the crash is expected in the weeks to come, but after a post-mortem examination, Dorset Coroners Court have been able to identify the cause of death as injuries to the head and trunk.

Sala crash report says plane not licensed for commercial use.
Air accident investigators say the plane carrying soccer player Emiliano Sala was not licensed for commercial use by authorities. The initial crash report investigators have yet to determine whether it could be classified as a private flight if costs were being shared. The single-engine aircraft crashed into the English Channel while flying last month from France to Wales.
