Brazilian side Chapecoense have unveiled a new club badge which will honour those lost in the tragic plane crash in Colombia.

Last Monday the crash claimed the lives of 71 people on board, including 19 Chapecoense players who were on their way to face Atletico Nacional in the final of the Copa Sudamericana.

The trophy has since been awarded to Chapecoense by CONMEBOL as a mark of respect and the club released a new badge on Twitter on Thursday with two new stars.

The first star at the top was to honour their first Copa Sudamericana trophy, South America's second most prestigious cup continental competition.

The second star, which goes in the F on the club's badge is in memory of those who lost their lives.
