Newcastle United's players and staff have paused to remember those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks in Paris.

The club observed a Europe-wide minute's silence at 11am today.

On Friday night 129 people were killed by a series of attacks in the city as France played Germany at the Stade de France.

Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko was an unused substitute in the game, which itself was the target of one of the attacks.

And the club today posted a photograph on Twitter of Steve McClaren and his players linking arms in silence as they remembered the dead.

United also posted another tweet which simply read: "We are united".
