A man played John Lennon's classic plea for peace Imagine for a crowd gathered outside the Bataclan concert hall in Paris - the venue where 80 people were killed in a terror attack.

The musician arrived on a bike, sat down at a mobile piano and began playing as members of the public and press listened in silence.

After finishing the song the man left the scene in tears.

Footage of the moment posted on Twitter by Danish journalist Rasmus Tantholdt has since gone viral.

The concert hall was the scene of the greatest death toll of a night when co-ordinated terror attacks across France's capital claimed the lives of 127 people.
