The Football League has asked its member clubs to pay tribute to Mandela at this weekend's games.

Football League Chief Executive Shaun Harvey said: "Nelson Mandela was an inspiration to millions and his determination, courage and forgiveness marked him out as a truly great man.

"We are delighted to give clubs and their supporters the opportunity to pay their own tributes to Nelson Mandela and recognise his extraordinary legacy."
