Over 1,500 people were injured as panic swept through a crowd of Juventus supporters watching the Champions League final in Turin on Saturday.

A fan zone was set up to allow those unable to get to the game in Cardiff to take in the European showpiece as the Bianconeri faced Real Madrid.

The Turin prefect said in a statement that the large crowd "was taken by panic and by the psychosis of a terror attack” as a result of a surge caused by a loud noise which was initially feared to be a bomb.

With thousands looking to flee the area in Piazza San Carlo, some supporters were trampled or crushed against safety barriers.

Three of those in attendance were to suffer serious injury, though, including a seven-year-old boy who is reported to have suffered head and chest trauma. In total, some 1,527 people were injured.
