West Ham United have filmed a tribute to forward Dylan Tombides, who died after a battle with testicular cancer at the age of 20 last weekend.

Hammers fans gave Tombides a minute's applause before their Premier League game at the weekend, while his former team-mates and manager Sam Allardyce paid personal tributes.

Allardyce himself talks of Tombides as having the most potential of any of the players in the academy on his arrival—it is a tragedy that he will never have the chance to prove it.
