Leinster players paid the ultimate tribute to respected foe and Munster hero Anthony Foley by donning Munster red prior to their match in Montpellier on Sunday.

All of the tops carried Foley's iconic number eight on the back.

The big screen in the stadium displayed an image of Foley during an emotion minute's silence before kick-off.

Leinster's kind gesture proves that sport can bring everyone together in difficult times.
