On Saturday, Borussia Dortmund showed a strong message in support of racial equality before their game against Hertha Berlin while Bayern Munich wore Black Lives Matter armbands against Bayer Leverkusen.

Dortmund players, including Jadon Sancho, showed their solidarity by warming up in tops with messages such as 'no justice, no peace' and 'united together'.

Sancho was one of the first players to display his support for the cause when he revealed a 'Justice for George Floyd' message after scoring against Paderborn last weekend.

With protests still continuing in the USA and elsewhere, Bayern players and staff wore t-shirts displaying the Black Lives Matter hashtag and the slogan of the club's official "Reds Against Racism" campaign.
