Football pays tribute to Nelson Mandela

A minute's applause is to be held at Premier League matches in tribute to former South Africa president Nelson Mandela, who died on Thursday aged 95. The first match is Manchester United against Newcastle, with six more Saturday games, two on Sunday, and Swansea v Hull on Monday.

There will also be applause at Football League and FA Cup second-round matches.
