Former England and Aston Villa defender Ugo Ehiogu is being honoured at football matches this weekend.

Ehiogu died at the age of 44 on Friday, after suffering a cardiac arrest at Tottenham’s training centre on Thursday.

Both teams will wear black armbands at Spurs’ FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Saturday (17:15 BST).

A minute’s applause will be held before kick-off, with Villa’s derby against Birmingham following suit on Sunday.
