Boxing superstar Kell Brook paid a moving tribute to Sheffield's Kelly Brewster before his open workout at the Peace Gardens yesterday.

The Sheffield-born boxer arrived at his open workout bearing a bouquet of flowers before placing them with the rest of the floral tributes.

Brooks had also penned a poignant handwritten message on the card, paying tribute to Sheffield's Kelly Brewster who was one of the 22 victims.

The IBF world welterweight champion wrote: "Kelly, rest in peace, from Kell Brook and family."

Kelly was tragically killed as she shielded her niece from the blast at the Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande gig.

The 32-year-old was watching the performance with her sister Claire Booth and niece Hollie, 11.

Discussing the horrifying events, Brook told The Mirror: "I'm heartbroken with everything that has gone on.

"It's a real downer but we've got all these people, we love each other and we need to get back strong."

Stringent new security measures will be in place at Bramall Lane for Brook's fight with Errol Spence Jr on Saturday in the wake of the attack.

Full-body searches will take place upon entry to the venue and no bags will be allowed into the stadium for the fight, promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed.

Hundreds of fans turned out yesterday to watch Brook's open training session in the Peace Gardens and the fighter said he expects to be roared on by his home crowd.

He told Sky Sports News: "I am Steel City, I am Sheffield born and bred and these are all the crew. I've got all my people behind me 100 per cent. We're going to rock Sheffield Saturday night.

"I am going to draw some serious energy from these guys. They're going to be screaming and shouting. They're coming to a great event and I'm ready.

""All these guys know they are going to see a thriller. I am coming to bring it, Errol is coming to bring it. There are going to be two winners that night - myself and everybody watching."
