The father of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has passed away after he drowned in a lake near his holiday home in southern Brazil.

57-year-old Jose Becker was swimming in a lake on his property in southern Brazil when he drowned on Wednesday.

Various reports across Brazil emerged in the early hours of Thursday morning before the tragic news was confirmed.

Brazilian club Internacional, who both Alisson and his brother Muriel played for, tweeted their condolences.

"It is with great sadness that we received the news of Jose Agostinho Becker's death, the father of our ex-goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel," the club said.

Alisson began his career at Internacional before joining Roma in 2016. He moved to Liverpool in 2018 and the 28-year-old has been key in helping them to win the Premier League, Champions League and Club World Cup under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool are next scheduled to play Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday.
