Over 80 people lost their lives in Nice yesterday when a vehicle drove into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day
Following the tragic events which took place yesterday in France, patrons at The Open Championship have paid tribute to the victims of a terrorist attack.
At least 84 people are confirmed dead after a lorry crashed into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day in Nice. Men, women and children are among those who lost their lives just months after the horrific attacks in Paris last November.
Events like this can put the importance of sport into true perspective, which has prompted patrons at The Open to honour those who have been affected by the events.
