Cecil's death was confirmed by his club which tweeted, "It is with sadness that we confirm the passing of our brave warrior Cecil Lolo. May his soul rest in peace."

The 28-year-old was one of two men killed in a head-on collision just before midnight on Saturday.

A special tribute by his team has been paid to the “incredibly talented and beloved warrior.”

“We will miss him terribly, All of us, his team mates, the kids in the academy, the staff and all our supporters. It’s a void that just can’t be filled. The only motivation that is left is that we dedicate the season to him and make sure that his memory is remembered in the success of this 2015 season,” commented CEO, Ari Efstathiou. “Watch us from above and guide us like you did when you were with us. Your laughter and wonderful personality will remain in our hearts forever. Rest in Peace our Warrior,” concluded Efstathiou.
