Atletico Nacional were given the Fair Play Award for conceding the Copa Sudamericana title to the Brazilian side Chapecoense, whose team was decimated when a plane taking them to the final crashed, killing 71 people.
"We did nothing more than what we had to do....handing them this trophy as a gesture of hope," de La Cuesta said.
