AMONG the sea of blue, a single flash of yellow acts as one of the most poignant tributes to Sir Bobby Robson.

One unknown Norwich City fan has tied a Canaries scarf to the railings in front of the Robson statue outside Portman Road to prove that, in times of sadness, football's battle lines can be temporarily forgotten.

Tributes have been pouring into this newspaper's sister publication, the Norwich-based Eastern Daily Press, while one Norwich fan has set up an online fantasy football league competition in tribute to Sir Bobby, who bravely beat cancer four times before the disease finally claimed him last Friday.
