Tributes have poured in from the football community following a terror attack in London on Saturday evening.
Seven people were killed and at least 48 others were injured when a van hit pedestrians on London Bridge, before three men got out and stabbed people in nearby Borough Market. The three male attackers were later shot dead by police.

The attack overshadowed Real Madrid clinching their 12th Champions League in their history, beating Juventus 4-1 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff just moments before.
Clubs and players across Europe, including Blancos captain Sergio Ramos who took part in the final, took to social media to share their condolences and pay tribute to those affected by the attacks.
It’s so sad … My best wishes go out to everyone affected by the #London attack #beautifulCity #StayStrong
