Football supporters across the country paid tribute to murdered six-year-old boy Arthur Labinjo-Hughes yesterday.

Applause filled the London Stadium for a sixth-minute tribute as West Ham hosted Chelsea and it was a similar scene at Watford where Arthur’s image was projected onto a big screen during their game against Manchester City.

The youngster was a fan of Birmingham City whose players wore ‘Arthur we love you’ T-shirts and were pictured carrying a banner bearing his picture before their match against Millwall.

Coventry City, who played West Brom, also paid tribute, as did fans at Wolves and Newcastle.

Arthur died of a head injury in June 2020.

Emma Tustin was jailed for 29 years on Friday for murder and child cruelty and Arthur’s father, Thomas Hughes, was given 21 years for his manslaughter.
