The midfielder played for both clubs and died on the pitch 10 years ago aged just 28.
Supporters from Manchester City and West Ham United paid tribute to their former player Marc-Vivien Foe, who died 10 years ago, during their Premier League encounter.
City showed an image of Foe on the electronic display screens at the Etihad Stadium in the 23rd minute of the game, in reference to his squad number during his time at the club, and fans of both sides joined in a minute’s applause.
The Cameroon midfielder died at the age of 28 after suffering a cardiac arrest and collapsing during a Confederations Cup semi-final against Colombia in Lyon in June 2003.
It was later revealed that he had had a hereditary heart condition.
Speaking after Saturday’s game, which City won 2-1, manager Roberto Mancini said: “I’m happy we remembered Marc-Vivien Foe, who was a great player for Manchester City.”
Foe joined West Ham from Lens in 1999 and spent one season at the club before signing for Lyon, who loaned him to City during the 2002-03 season.
Foe scored the last ever City goal at their former Maine Road stadium and following his death, the club retired their number 23 shirt in his honour.
