Monaco fans showed their support inside Signal Iduna Park after news of an explosion near the Borussia Dortmund team bus.

The German outfit’s Champions League quarter-final clash with Monaco has been postponed as a result of the incident six miles away from the Westfalenstadion.

Dortmund took to Twitter to reiterate that the rest of the squad was safe and that there was no danger in or around the stadium.

The incident reportedly took place in Hochsten, as the team left their hotel.

German police have stated it is not possible to identify what caused the explosion.

As news of what happened filtered through to the supporters already inside the stadium, video emerged of fans showing their support.

Dortmund fans were seen on their feet clapping after hearing their team were safe and sound following the incident.

While Monaco fans chanted “Dortmund” to show support for their opposition.
