Robin Roberts has been praised by fans as she shared a message of hope and forgiveness on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

"20 years later as we remember 9/11," she captioned her post, adding she was sending a "special morning message and prayer".

The video saw Robin backstage at Good Morning America and she said: "I thought it would be good to have a message of prayer this morning. Give people grace to change when they have done you wrong, don't judge their whole life on one season of mistake."

She continued: "You are not the judge and jury, leave it in God's hands."

The attacks on September 11 2001 were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the militant Islamist terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States of America.

Two planes crashed into the Twin Towers in Manhattan, while a third hit the Pentagon, outside Washington DC. The fourth had an unknown target in the nation's capital but passengers attempted to regain control of the aircraft and it crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.

It remains the deadliest terrorist attack in human history, with 2977 innocent people dying including 340 firefighters and 72 police officers, and over 25,000 injuries.
