Figures from the world of sport and motorsport have paid their tributes to the late Jules Bianchi after he succumbed to injuries sustained in an accident during last year's Japanese Grand Prix.

Bianchi suffered serious head injuries after his Marussia F1 car was in collision with a recovery vehicle in treacherous conditions at Suzuka in October 2014. The 25 year-old passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning, nine months after the accident.

As the first F1 driver to die as a result of injuries sustained in an F1 race since Ayrton Senna in 1994, tributes are pouring in for Jules Bianchi from across the motorsport world, including his former Manor Marussia team, as well as friends and rivals from F1.
