Zurich: To show appreciation for the efforts made and risks braved by healthcare workers and other professionals who are giving their all to ensure society continues to function in the face of the coronavirus, football stars both past and present have come together to pay tribute to humanity's heroes.

To all of these heroic people: football thanks you, football remembers you and football supports you.
