The world is in shock at the horrific terror attacks on the French capital Paris.

At least 128 innocent people were killed and more than 200 seriously injured as eight gunmen wearing suicide vests went on a murderous rampage around the city.

People were gunned down on the streets, in restaurants, watching a band play at a gig and others were reportedly even killed outside the Stade de France where France were playing a friendly with Germany.

Huge explosions could be heard during the game and were captured on TV cameras as the world learned the French capital was under attack.

Thousands of fans spilled onto the pitch and were kept in the stadium for safety as attacks continued to be carried out across Paris.

The football world was left shocked and horrified by what had taken place outside the ground and footballers posted messages of tribute and support for the people of Paris.
