A video and drone display tribute has been paid at the end of the Dubai World Cup to the late Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance passed away on Wednesday.

Drones took the sky over the Meydan racecourse as a giant video screen showed poignant images of Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid.

It said the Equestrian would be "Forever in our memories" in tribute to his lasting legacy on the horse racing world, adding "Rest in Peace".
