Brussels Airport was rocked by a double blast while another explosion then went off at a Metro station in the city. At least 26 people have been killed, while many more injured.

Congo international Mbokani, who is on loan from Dynamo Kiev, was at Zaventem Airport at the time of the attacks.

City say the 30-year-old was “unharmed but shaken” by the events and they added that Mbokani has now returned home to be with his family, and the club remain in constant dialogue with him.

A club statement added: “The thoughts of everyone at Norwich City are with the victims of the atrocities in Belgium today and their relatives.”

It is unknown whether Mbokani would be involved in Congo’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Angola on Saturday and next Tuesday.

Norwich added: “There will be no further statements from the club or Dieumerci Mbokani at this time.”

The Belgian national team have cancelled Tuesday’s scheduled training session out of respect for the victims of the attacks.

Belgium are set to play Portugal in an international friendly at Brussels’ King Baudouin Stadium on Tuesday March 29, but the fixture is now in doubt.
