Borussia Dortmund players hilariously paid tribute to an empty 'Yellow Wall' after their 4-0 victory over Schalke on Saturday afternoon.
The Bundesliga made a huge return and the marquee game of the day saw Dortmund run riot in the Revierderby at Signal Iduna Park.
Following the game, Dortmund's players decided to keep up their usual post-match tradition and clap towards the stands - despite nobody being sat in them.

Fans on social media have reacted to the act and they think it's a great showing from the BVB players.
Even without their fans they showed that fans make football.

On the pitch, it was back to business for Lucien Favre's side as they ran out comfortable winners.
Erling Haaland opened the scoring 29 minutes in after an altercation with Schalke defender Jean-Clair Todibo moments prior.
Dortmund then doubled their lead just before half-time after Raphael Guerreiro rifled home following a mistake from goalkeeper Markus Schubert.
A third followed less than five minutes after the restart as Thorgan Hazard, a late addition to the starting line-up, rifled home.
If there's one positive we can take from no fans it's the sound of the ball hitting the back of the net.
Case in point, Thorgan Hazard

Guerreiro then popped up to net his second of the game with a lovely finish.
The result moves Dortmund one point behind Bayern Munich, ahead of the current leaders' clash with Union Berlin tomorrow.
Football is back and despite it not being as we know it, the Bundesliga's return was a welcome sight for fans across the world.
