The death of HM the Queen has been announced by Buckingham Palace.

Queen Elizabeth II passed away, aged 96, at the Balmoral estate in Scotland where she has been staying over the summer.

The UK's longest reigning monarch passed away only days after meeting new Prime Minister Liz Truss in what was her final act as the country's figurehead.

 

Arsenal also released a statement: "Everyone at Arsenal Football Club is saddened at the news of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

"Her Majesty gave remarkable service over eight decades to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth and we join together with so many around the world in mourning her passing and wish to extend our deepest sympathies to the Royal Family."

The Arsenal and Zurich teams paused to pay their respects during their Europa League group match in Switzerland, prior to the Gunners winning 2-1.
