For Arthur Labinjo-Humphrey, Birmingham City has renamed section of their stadium

Now known as Arthur's Area, the club's Family Zone is designed to provide an area for children to have fun before the start of the game.

Additionally, a memorial garden 'where fans may take a peaceful moment to remember him' would be built outside St Andrew's stadium, as well as a large flag and bricks in his honour.

His stepmother and father poisoned Arthur with salt after a long period of cruelty, involving beatings and starvation.
The little Birmingham City fan can be seen beaming in a Blues shirt in one of the images released by police as part of the criminal investigation.

Fans of both Birmingham and local rivals Aston Villa have contributed to the development of a mural depicting the same image in the Digbeth neighbourhood of Birmingham.
Tweeted by West Midlands Mayor Andy Street: "It speaks so much about our city and region the way everyone has come together in the face of such loss and sadness," he said.

For as long as people remember Arthur as the smiling, happy youngster in the Blues shirt from social media, Birmingham City will do everything in its power to keep that memory alive in their hearts and thoughts.

You are adored, Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.'

The front cover of the match programme for Saturday's game against Cardiff will feature Arthur, with a portion of the proceeds going to Birmingham-based children's charities.
