Tragedy struck Paris last night as 128 people were killed after a series of terrorist attacks, one of which appeared to target the Stade de France while it hosted a friendly between France and Germany.
An explosion outside of the stadium was audible during television footage of the match, which Les Bleus won 2-0 courtesy of goals from Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud and Andre-Pierre Gignac.
According to BBC Sport, three people died as a result of the blast. The French players were not made aware of the news until full time, when fans took to the pitch to avoid leaving the safety of the stadium.
Laurent Koscielny, Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris, Manchester City full-back Bacary Sagna and Manchester United starlet Anthony Martial were all on the pitch for France at the time of the explosion.
BBC News also reports that at least 100 people were been killed at the Bataclan arts centre, where gunmen held a number of people hostage. Restaurants in the French capital were also targeted.
France have declared a national state of emergency and a three-day mourning period, but Tuesday’s friendly against England at Wembley will go ahead after deliberation, as the Metro reports.
