Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki says 'no one was thinking about football' in the wake of Tuesday's shocking explosions.

Dortmund's Champions League tie against Monaco was postponed after three explosions went off near the Dortmund team bus as it left for the stadium.

The team bus had just pulled out of their hotel driveway when three explosive devices were detonated.

"The police were quickly on the spot and handled the situation. We were all in shock and no one was thinking about football anymore.
