Tribute was paid to Chapecoense on Wednesday by fans of Atletico Nacional, as their supporters attended a memorial at the stadium in Medellin, Colombia.

Fans poured into the venue where Chapecoense had been set to play Atletico Nacional in the Copa Sudamericana final. Flowers were arranged, and children dressed in the Brazilian club's colors carried that country's flag. The stands were packed for the solemn memorial, which was also lit up by small flickers of light from thousands of candles.

Despite the tragic circumstances, the crowd did their best to lighten the mood, as the Colombian team's supporters shouted slogans in support of Chapecoense. And Brazil's Foreign Minister, Jose Serra, delivered a speech to mourn the deceased.
