Munster fans have paid a moving tribute to head coach Anthony Foley, who died suddenly at the team hotel in Paris.

The former Ireland international was 42 years old and had been in charge at Munster since July 2014.

His team were just hours away from their game against Racing 92 at the Stade Yves du Manoir in Colombes, but the match was postponed after the news broke.

It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to our coach, former captain, colleague and friend today, rest in peace Anthony Foley.

Fans, who’d been gathering outside the stadium, paid tribute to the club’s most capped player by singing together and leaving flags, shirts and handwritten notes against the railings.

Back-rower Foley captained Ireland three times during a 62-cap career, and skippered Munster to Heineken Cup glory in 2006, with victory over Biarritz in Cardiff.
