Ayrton Senna died as the result of a collision at the San Marino Grand Prix on May 1 1994 - 20 years ago today. To mark two decades since his passing, a statue of Senna is to be unveiled at Imola; the track where he suffered his fatal injuries.

Senna was a three-time Formula 1 champion and remains the last driver to have lost his life in the sport, with more stringent safety measures introduced following his crash in San Marino.

There will be numerous other tributes across Brazil to mark the anniversary of the death of Senna, such an icon in his native country, and there has already been one notable homage paid by Sao Paulo club Corinthians.

Corinthians met with Nacional AM on Wednesday night and used it as their opportunity to offer their own Senna tribute. The players carried with them onto the pitch replica Senna-style F1 crash helmets - in classic green and yellow Brazilian colours - before lining-up for the classic pre-match pleasantries.

The Corinthians starting XI then all proceeded to put on the helmets as the crowd in Senna’s hometown applauded. Take a look at the moment in the video above.
