Lionel Messi has posted a moving message to Barcelona, following the tragic terrorist attack that took place in the city earlier today.

The Argentine posted a black and white picture of the city, alongside a black ribbon with the following message.

“I want to send my condolences and all my support to the families and friends of the victims of the terrible attack in our beloved Barcelona, in addition to totally rejecting any act of violence.

“We are not going to give up, we are many more who want to live in a world of peace, without hate and where respect and tolerance are the basis of coexistence”.

The RFEF has also recommended a minute’s silence should take place in all matches this weekend in tribute to those affected by today’s awful events.
