Football fans create a huge rainbow flag in the stands during Watford's game on Tuesday.

Watford FC - which was owned by Elton John from 1976 to 2002 - went up against Manchester City on Tuesday (December 4) at their home stadium Vicarage Road, and during the game, fans transformed themselves into a giant rainbow flag to support Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign.
