The family of football legend Sir Bobby Robson has visited the shrine created by fans at Newcastle United's stadium.
His widow Lady Elsie Robson paused to read messages left among the tributes to the former England, Ipswich and Newcastle manager at St James' Park.
Onlookers broke into applause as she arrived with sons Andrew, 50, and Paul, 52, and family friends.
County Durham-born Sir Bobby died on Friday at the age of 76 following a long battle against cancer.
Lady Robson is said to have been "overwhelmed" by the show of affection for her husband since his death.
A spokeswoman for the family said: "There must have been thousands of people here and she is very grateful to everybody who has made extremely generous donations to his charity."
Books of condolence
Sir Bobby's son Andrew said his father would have been touched by people's reaction.
"I am sure he would have been very, very appreciative, but I think he would have been overwhelmed and would have wondered where all these people have come from," he said.
The football club confirmed the Sir John Hall Stand at the north end of the ground would remain open from 0900 to 1700 BST each day this week.
It said about 50,000 people had already turned up at the stadium to pay their respects.
Four books of condolence have been filled and a further six are close to being completed.
One Newcastle supporter, Alan Barrows, from Sunderland, called for a two-minute silence as a mark of respect to Sir Bobby before the two Newcastle versus Ipswich Championship fixtures.
He said: "Sir Bobby will be missed not only here but at all the other clubs he has managed as well."
