Following the attacks, David Cameron joined Prince William to attend a football match between France and England at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday evening. In his role as President of the Football Association, William lead a one-minute silence to pay respects to those affected by the attacks, and joined a rousing rendition of the French national anthem in a show of solidarity with France.

A number of other celebrities around the world have expressed their shock and support. Among them was Justin Bieber who wrote a heartfelt tribute after discovering his former colleague and friend Thomas Ayad was among those who had been killed at the Bataclan concert hall.

As an act of solidarity many monuments around the world were lit up in red, white and blue, the colours of the French flag – including the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the London Eye and Sydney Opera House.
