French football fans put on a powerful display of strength and solidarity at the Stade de France.

The world was rocked with the news of a series of attacks in North Paris on Friday night. More than 120 people are believed to have been killed in six separate attacks across the city. More than 200 people are injured, 80 seriously.

Three people were killed near Stade de France where France were playing Germany after a bomb detonated at the stadium’s Gate J.

French media reported that initially a lockdown took place at the stadium at full-time as fans were recommended by police to refrain from leaving.

The fans were eventually evacuated from the stadium, and footage has emerged of the crowds of people singing the French national anthem as they made their exit.

Dans un tunnel de sortie du Stade de France, sortie dans le calme…. Et la Marseillaise. #fier
