OGC Nice to honour victims of Nice attacks with wonderful touch on jersey for season opener

This deserves endless admiration.

Ligue 1 side OGC Nice are set to get their season started by sporting a special kit to honour the victims of the Nice attack last month.

85 people were killed and 307 injured on July 14 when a cargo truck ploughed into crowds celebrating Bastille Day on Nice's Promenade des Anglais.

The attack was the worst act of terror in France since last November's Paris attacks and it has been described as 'the worst day in Nice's history.'

So, on Sunday, when OGC Nice start their new campaign at home to Rennes, they will not be wearing their usual black and red stripes.

Instead, they will sport a variation of their white away kit but rather than have sponsor 'Mutuelles du Soleil' emblazoned across the midriff, they will have the logo of a heart, which is made up of the names of the 85 people who lost their lives on July 14.

It truly is a wonderful touch.
