However, video later emerged on social media of two men in the home section of the stadium apparently making aeroplane gestures in the direction of the away fans.

Investigators recovered the body on Wednesday and transported it to the southern English coast.

The player was missing for over two weeks after his aircraft lost signal over the Channel Islands on January 21.

The Air Accidents Investigations Branch (AAIB) said the search and rescue operation had been carried out "as dignified a way as possible" and the men's families were kept updated throughout.

"The families of Sala and the pilot David Ibbotson have been updated with this news.", the force said in a statement.

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

Cardiff City led the Premier League's tributes to Emiliano Sala on Saturday in the first round of English top-flight matches since his death was confirmed earlier this week.

Sala had been a fan favourite at Nantes prior to his transfer, having scored 42 Ligue 1 goals in the last three-and-a-half years, with 12 of those coming in just 19 appearances this season.

Earlier today, the club registered a 2-1 win as Kenneth Zohore scored a dramatic injury-time victor against Southampton.

Southampton asserted their intention to ban anybody found to be involved in taunting the travelling Cardiff fans.

"The Club will continue to work with Hampshire Police to identify any individuals deemed to have made indecent gestures towards Cardiff supporters". Afterwards, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock dedicated the win to Sala: "We wanted to do it for Emiliano and I'm really proud the lads have done him justice".

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan said on Friday that the club have offered to pay to take Sala "back to rest" in his hometown of Progreso in rural Argentina.
