Police have confirmed 22 deaths following a blast at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena, which is being treated as a terror incident.

Tributes have poured in from the football community after a suspected terror attack in Manchester on Monday.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed 22 fatalities and 50 injuries following a blast at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena, which is being treated as a terrorist incident.

Reports of an explosion were heard just before 22:35 (local time) in Manchester as fans of the American singer fled the arena.

The football world led the tributes as British Prime Minister Theresa May expressed her sympathy and condemned the incident.

Football in mourning

Premier League giants Manchester City - based at the Etihad Stadium - wrote on Twitter: "It's with great sadness we hear of the terrible events at the Arena. Our hearts go out to all affected and to our city's emergency services."

Old Trafford neighbours United also communicated their distress via Twitter and later issued a statement announcing the closure of the store, cafe and stadium tour as a mark of respect for the victims.

United's opponent in tomorrow's Europa League final in Solna Ajax Amsterdam were just one of thousand tweets from the football community expressing their sadness in the aftermath of the attack.
