Thousands of people are saying 'no' to violence in football online, after a fan died in fighting which broke out in Madrid this weekend.

Francisco Javier Romero - Jimmy, to his friends - died in clashes between Deportivo La Coruna supporters and Atletico Madrid before a match in the Spanish capital on Sunday.

The hashtag #NoALaViolenciaEnElFutbol - "No to violence in football" - has become a trending topic on Twitter, with hundreds of pictures from people condemning the event and calling for an end to violence.

Romero was taken out of a river near Atletico's Vincente Calderon Stadium suffering from cardiac arrest, hypothermia and head injuries. He later died in hospital.
