The motorcyclist was killed in the accident, which happened around 50miles north of Sao Paulo.

They have been named as 38-year-old man Eliezer Pena, who leaves behind a wife and two young daughters.

Brazilian reports say Renan was driving a Honda Civic when he veered onto the wrong side of the road and collided head-on with a Honda motorcycle.

He was arrested by local police following the incident, and the defender is claimed to have refused to take a breathalyser test.

A custody hearing is reportedly scheduled for today, with Renan having been kept in jail ever since the accident.

Brazilian outlet UOL say Renan was driving with a provisional licence at the time, which was subsequently suspended.

The defender had been on loan at Brazilian side Red Bull Bragantino from Club World Cup finalists Palmeiras.
