Premier League and English Football League clubs wore black armbands and held a minute’s applause before kick-off in this weekend’s games in honour of Brazil legend Pele.
The Scottish Professional Football League has also suggested all clubs pay their respects with a minute’s applause or “other appropriate gesture”.
Three-time World Cup winner Pele passed away on Thursday at the age of 82.
Brazil has declared three days of national mourning as tributes pour in.
The Premier League tributes began at West Ham v Brentford, with the iconic image of Pele embracing Bobby Moore shown on the big screen at London Stadium.
In the later kick-off, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson and midfielder Jordan Henderson placed flowers on the centre circle at Anfield before the side’s match against Leicester.
All 10 Premier League games over the weekend will hold similar tributes.
Before Saturday’s match between Newcastle and Leeds at St James’ Park, the hosts’ Brazil midfielder Bruno Guimaraes wore a signed Pele Brazil shirt.
A minute’s applause and black armbands were also seen at EFL fixtures on Friday and other clubs will follow suit on 1 and 2 January.
Football’s world governing body Fifa has lowered flags at its headquarters in Switzerland to half-mast for Pele “as a symbol of mourning and respect”.
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) says it has “arranged a minute’s silence to remember Pele,” in forthcoming games, while Pele’s contribution to the sport will similarly be recognised at matches in Spain and France this weekend
