Tonight France and England are involved in an international football friendly at the Stade de France but before kick off tributes were organised in Paris to mark the recent terror attacks in London and Manchester.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and the French President Emmanuel Macron were watching on at the Stade de France as Oasis song 'Don't Look Back In Anger' was played as planned as the teams took to the field, with fans from both sides joining in for an emotional rendition. A minute's silence also took place before the match kicked off. 

It follows the events of November 2015 friendly at Wembley which came days after the Paris attacks and saw both English and French fans join together to sing an emotional rendition of the French national anthem 'La Marseillaise' in tribute.
