Switzerland international's body found

Tragically, divers have recovered the body of Young Boys and Swiss women’s team player Florijana Ismaili from Lake Como.

She had been on a rented boat with a friend on Saturday afternoon when diving in for a swim only around 100m from shore, but never resurfaced.

After days of searches, which had to use a robot to reach the depths of the lake, her body was found today.

She was 24 years old.
