Lazio Ultras turned out in large numbers for the funeral of their leader Fabrizio Piscitelli at a cemetery in Rome on Wednesday. Footage shows fans paying tributes to Piscitelli chanting and lighting flares in the teams colours in front of riot police.

Piscitelli, known as Diabolik, led a group of Lazio's hardcore supporters who were associated with far-right groups. He was shot dead in a park in Rome nearly two weeks ago.

The funeral that was originally set to take place on Tuesday was delayed until Wednesday after the family of Pisticelli reportedly protested a court decision for the ceremony to be private.
