Football fans have paid a special tribute to a man who died when he was hit by a tube train trying to save his brother.

Nick Mann was a Shrewsbury Town supporter who was in London for a night out last weekend.

He was trying to save his brother Robert from an oncoming train after he got into trouble on the tracks.

The pair were both hit, Nick died while Robert remains in intensive care in hospital.

Mid-way through today's a game, his photograph was flashed on the scoreboard and fans applauded for a minute.
