Marseille fans display tribute banner to Nelson Mandela

Marseille fans unfurl a huge banner paying tribute to anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela, who died last week at the age of 95.

Marseille supporters decided to pay tribute to the late Nelson Mandela by unfurling a huge banner across the crowd during last night's Champions League action.

Before the French outfit's 2-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund last night, the fans paid their respects to the anti-apartheid hero, who died last Thursday at the age of 95.

The former South Africa president has received a hoard of tributes from sporting figures from around the globe after he lost his battle with a lengthy illness.

Take a look at the banner below:
