Liverpool FC has held a minute’s silence to honour the victims of the Manchester bombing ahead of the club’s friendly against Sydney.

The terror attack on Manchester Arena left 22 people dead, and 59 others injured. Yesterday those living in the English city held a vigil for victims of the attack.

Athletes, artists and politicians from around the world also offered their sympathies for those who had lost their lives.

UEFA also confirmed that a minute's silence will also be observed ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final in Stockholm between Manchester United and Ajax.
