Cyrille's widow Julia Regis said to the Coventry Observer: “We have been so moved by the love that has been shown to Cyrille and his family by Coventry fans, the club and people from the city. It has really helped us through this sorrowful time.

“Cyrille loved Coventry and we are greatly honoured by the call to hold a memorial at the city’s cathedral, which has always been a symbol of God’s love, peace and reconciliation.

“We would be very happy to explore the idea with the club and the church at a future date.”
