After a suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device killing 22 people and injuring up to 64 at Manchester Arena, a minute’s silence was planned ahead of Manchester United’s Europa League final against Ajax.
Ahead of kick-off, both teams stood at the edge of the centre circle, but the expected silence soon turned into applause and singing.
With the stadium already apparently silent, the stadium announcer began to speak, at which point applause and singing began to fill the stadium.
