The incident happened at 11:40 hours this morning when the car in which Reyes was travelling in veered off the A-376 motorway from de Seville to Utrera and caught fire.

He was a member of the ‘Invincible’ side that remained unbeaten for the 2003/04 season and eventually moved back to Spain, initially on loan to Real Madrid in 2006, before joining Atletico Madrid permanently in 2007.
He joined Sevilla for a second stint in 2012 and remained there until 2016. Since then Reyes has played for Espanyol, Córdoba, Xinjiang Tianshan Leopard and, most recently, Extremadura.
