Prince William was joined by England manager Roy Hodgson and French coach Didier Deschamps on the field at Wembley to lay floral tributes before the national anthems at the England v France football friendly on Tuesday November 17.

English and French fans united for a rendition of the French National Anthem with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger among those in the crowd.

The French players stood arm in arm as La Marseillaise rang out in Wembley.

There followed a minute´s silence in tribute to those who lost their lives in Friday´s attacks in Paris and the crowd observed the silence in a fine show of solidarity.

Extra 10,000 tickets were made available for the match since Friday’s attacks and fans quickly took the opportunity to make a stand, united and unafraid, at the sporting event.
