UTRERA – Hundreds of mourners attended the funeral in Spain on Monday of former Real Madrid and Arsenal forward Jose Antonio Reyes, who was killed in a weekend car crash.
Reyes’ coffin, draped in the flag of his boyhood club Sevilla, was carried through the streets of his hometown of Utrera before the funeral service at a local church.
The 35-year-old former Spanish international died on Saturday in an accident on the main road from Sevilla to Utrera.
The crash and resultant fireball also claimed the life of one of his cousins while another passenger was still in hospital on Monday, according to police.
Images from the scene of the crash show the burnt-out car flipped on its roof.
