On May 1, 1994, Ayrton Senna died at the San Marino Gran Prix in Imola, Italy. A crash ended the life of one of auto racing's greatest drivers, who had become much more than just an F1 hero. He was a larger than life figure in Brazil, and worldwide.
With Thursday marking the 20th anniversary of his death, Corinthians took their match on Wednesday as an opportunity to pay tribute to one of Sao Paulo's most beloved sons, walking onto the field with replicas of Senna's iconic yellow helmet.
In the stands, Corinthians fans unfurled a banner for Senna, with his face and name drawn in the middle of a checkered flag.
This was hardly the first time Brazilian soccer paid tribute to Senna. Brazil dedicated their 1994 World Cup to Senna and after winning the tournament, took photos on the field while holding up a banner in tribute to Senna.
Twenty years later, the memorials and celebrations continue for the man who captured a country, and the world.
