A Fenerbahce supporter has died after being stabbed by a group of Galatasaray fans following Sunday's Istanbul derby.

According to reports, 19-year-old Burak Yildirim was making his way home after Fenerbahce's 2-1 victory when he was attacked by a group of people allegedly wearing Galatasaray colours.
