Good Morning Britain news presenter Antoine Allen signs off his bulletin with the Wakanda Forever salute.

Good Morning Britain regional news presenter Antoine Allen signed off his bulletin today with a tribute to the late actor Chadwick Boseman.

The Black Panther actor died at the age of 43 on Friday after a private four-year battle with colon cancer, prompting tributes from around the world.

Presenting the ITV London bulletin during GMB, Allen declared "there's plenty more news on our website but now back to Piers and Susanna" before crossing his hands up over his chest.

The gesture is known as the 'Wakanda Forever salute', first used by Boseman in the Marvel movie and later becoming synonymous with him as a symbol of empowerment and solidarity.

Over the weekend F1 champion Lewis Hamilton performed the salute and dedicated his pole at the Belgian GP to the late actor.
