Minute's applause on Saturday

Millwall FC will be honouring the Football League's request to hold a minute's applause in memory of Nelson Mandela this weekend.
The Football League has asked its clubs to hold the applause ahead of matches to celebrate the life of Mr Mandela, who died yesterday at the age of 95.

Football League Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: "Nelson Mandela was an inspiration to millions and his determination, courage and forgiveness marked him out as a truly great man. 

We are delighted to give clubs and their supporters the opportunity to pay their own tributes to Nelson Mandela and recognise his extraordinary legacy."

"Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times
I fell down and got back up again." - Nelson Mandela
