There will be a minute’s silence before today’s UEFA Europa League final and a considerably reduced opening ceremony following Monday night’s attack in Manchester.

Following last night’s attack in Manchester, UEFA has confirmed that a minute’s silence will be observed prior to the UEFA Europa League final in Stockholm on Wednesday night.

The opening ceremony will also be considerably reduced as a mark of respect for the victims of the Manchester attack.

This will mean that Swedish artists Axwell Ingrosso will now not be performing before the final.
