Cesc Fabregas has visited the French embassy in Madrid to lay down a matchball and pay his respects to the victims of the terror attacks in Paris on Friday night.

The Spain international was in action for his country against England on Friday as the shocking events unfolded in Paris, with more than 130 people reported dead in a series of shootings and bombings across the city.

Terrorists targeted France’s international friendly clash with Germany at the Stade De France.

There was a blast outside the stadium during the game which left one person dead, and the Germany squad were forced to spend the night inside the ground amid security fears following the game.

Now, Fabregas has paid his respects to the victims and their families by laying down a matchball at the French embassy in Madrid over the weekend.

Speaking in the wake of Spain’s 2-0 friendly win over England on Friday night, Fabregas told reporters: “It was a strange situation. We finished the game, we were congratulating each other, and suddenly we stood,” the Chelsea midfielder said.

“We were talking, commenting on the news that was coming in. ‘Hey, this happened. How?’ I didn’t want to believe it, and we did not know what to say.

“They are misfortunes that should not and cannot happen in today’s world.”
