Premier League clubs paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II as English top-flight matches resumed on Friday.

All of English football was canceled on weekends following the death of Britain’s longest-serving monarch at the age of 96 last week.

The English Football League resumed on Tuesday, with tributes respectfully observed, as they were in Friday’s two Premier League games.

A minute’s silence was held and the national anthem was played at Villa Park and the City Ground.

All the lights even went out during the minute’s silence at Villa Park, except for a spotlight on Aston Villa and Southampton players in the center circle.

At the City Ground, the managers of Nottingham Forest and Fulham laid wreaths in the center circle before the minute’s silence.

All players and match officials wore black armbands, large screens and perimeter panels displayed images of homage to Her Majesty and flags flew at half mast.

Fans also cheered as each match reached 70 minutes, in honor of the Queen’s 70-year reign.
