Yaya Toure and his agent, Dimitri Seluk, have promised to donate £100,000 to help the victims of Monday's suicide bomb attack at Manchester Arena.

Sky Sports have been told Manchester City midfielder Toure felt the need to help when details of the first victims were made public.

"Yaya and I want to help. We talked this morning about what happened and he asked me what he thought we could do.

"We have agreed to donate £50,000 each to help the victims of this terrible crime. It doesn't matter whether the victims are from Manchester or not.

"Those of us lucky enough to work every day in football can do so because of the generosity of fans across the world.
"Yaya is from Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), I am Russian. It doesn't matter. Today is a chance for those of us in football to help out.

"My son is eight years old and I can't image the pain and the suffering that the parents of Saffie will be going through today."
