Nice Attack: Sports Pays Tribute To Victims Of Lorry Attack In France

According to the BBC, Sport has been paying tribute to the victims of Thursday’s attack in Nice.

At least 84 people died when a lorry struck a crowd marking Bastille Day in the southern French city.

At cycling’s Tour de France, a minute’s silence was held before the first rider went out for stage 13 at 09:05 BST, and another was held at the finish.

The Diamond League meeting in Monaco is to go ahead with a tribute planned, and the French flag was flown at half mast at The Open at Royal Troon, Scotland.

France, which has just finished hosting football’s European Championship, has been on high alert since November’s Paris attacks, in which 130 people died.

A state of emergency in the country has been extended by three months.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls has declared three days of national mourning from Saturday.
