On the release of this statement, fans rushed to react as they expressed their greatest sorrow in the loss of the player, but most of the reactions were made mostly in Belarusian language without translation. Though it beats sad and emotional emojis which showed their grief.
Kelvin was a good striker and he was just 20 years of age as of his time of death. The European club expressed their greatest and sincere condolences, promising to publish all the investigations and official reports once they become available.
The sorrow that comes with death at the edge of success is immeasurable. May his family find comfort. Rest in Peace Kelvin.
