David Beckham, Mo Farah, Lionel Messi, Rafael Nadal, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar are among the 52 sports stars in a video that played before Paris Saint-Germain’s first home game since terrorist attacks shook Paris earlier this month.

The athletes in the video are seen reciting “Je suis Paris.” The message is similar to the “Je suis Charlie” tributes after the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks that also took place in the French capital this year.

Maria Sharapova, Wayne Rooney and Andre Agassi are also seen in the video.

Watch the video below:

Several coordinated bombings and shootings throughout Paris killed 130 people and injured more. France’s match with Germany at the Stade de France was targeted, with explosions taking place outside the stadium

Players on the field wore jerseys with the message across the chest instead of the name of a corporate sponsor.

Edinson Cavani, Layvin Kurzawa, Jean-Kevin Augustin and Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored goals to give Paris Saint-Germain a 4–1 victory.
