Norwich City fans hoisted yellow and blue flags before the club's game against Brentford this afternoon, in a show of solidarity with the people of Ukraine following the Russian invasion.

A minute of applause was also held in their honour, while those sitting in the South Stand held up yellow and blue cards to make a mosaic of the eastern European country's flag.
