Flag Of France

Nottingham Forest lit up their stadium with the Tricolor.

Nottingham Forest showed solidarity with Paris as they lit up the City Ground with the French Tricolor on Monday night.

The gesture was to express their sympathy with the French people after the terror attack which took place on Friday.

129 people were killed in multiple attacks across the French capital, with a bomb also going off outside the Stade de France where France were playing Germany, and president Francois Hollande was in attendance.

Landmarks across the world have been lit up with the Tricolor, including Wembley Stadium, and Forest's move is a classy one.

The club do not currently have any French players in their first team squad, although Cape Verde international Ryan Mendes is currently on loan from Ligue 1 side Lille.

England face France in an international friendly at Wembley tonight, with fans asked to arrive early as there will be additional security screening to go through.

The words to the French national anthem will be displayed on the big screen, with England fans invited to join in to show their support for their cross-channel neighbours.
