The iconic former City player-of-the-year died on Wednesday at the age of 78, surrounded by his family in the Heartsease care home where he lived his twilight years.

Staff and players from Farke's first team and the club's academy paused to remember the legendary Scot prior to training on Friday morning.

City have also confirmed details of how fans can pay tribute to the talismanic defender ahead of Sunday's emotional Carrow Road home game against the Red Devils.

Ahead of the 4.30pm kick-off, a period of silence in memory of Forbes will be held, while players from both teams will be wearing black armbands as a mark of respect.

There will also be a period of silence and both teams will also wear black armbands prior to Friday night's Under-23s fixture between City and West Ham at Colney.

Meanwhile, Forbes will appear on the front cover of a special tribute edition of OTBC, the matchday programme.

Supporters attending the game on Sunday have been asked to make their way into the ground well in advance of the kick-off, to allow ample time to find their seats and pay their respects.

Flags atop the Geoffrey Watling City Stand at Carrow Road have been lowered to half-mast in Forbes' honour.
