Manchester United display Nelson Mandela tribute in Old Trafford dugout

Manchester United display a tribute message to the late Nelson Mandela at Old Trafford.

Manchester United decided to deliver their own personal tribute to the late Nelson Mandela by displaying a message by the dugout at Old Trafford.

The former South African president passed away at the age of 95 last week following a lengthy battle with illness, and tributes from figures around the sporting world poured in on Twitter.

Following yesterday's memorial service in South Africa, United decided to display a message saying, 'Madiba, the world will never forget,' prior to their 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League yesterday.

MUTV commentator Stewart Gardner tweeted an image of the tribute yesterday.
