Further, according to AS, they note that the crash was a result of a brakes failure. Étoile de Guinée manager d’Abdourahmane Condé said: “We were going downhill when the coach’s brakes suddenly gave way.

“There were three corners; the driver somehow managed to negotiate the first two, but there was nothing he could do about the third. He lost control of the vehicle and it crashed into a tree.”

Meanwhile, Keita took to Instagram as he reacted to the tragic news: “I am shocked, sad and heartbroken at this terrible news.

“I send my sincere condolences to all families of the victims, as well as the whole sporting family of Guinea.
