The opening 25 seconds of England’s fixture against Switzerland was broadcast in black and white for the first time in nearly half a century, in a move by The Football Association to honour Kick It Out’s 25th anniversary.

Viewers tuning into Sky Sports’ live coverage on Tuesday evening saw picture switch from colour to black and white as the teams entered the pitch at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium.

The historic footage continued without colour for 25 seconds, in recognition of Kick It Out’s landmark anniversary and to acknowledge the impact the organisation has made in tackling racism and all forms of discrimination in the game since 1993.
