Travis and Jason Kelce have spoken out about the shooting that took place during the Kansas City Chiefs winners' parade.

The brothers released a video on YouTube ahead of their latest podcast episode to address the tragic shooting that took place during the Super Bowl winners' parade on Valentine's Day.

As Travis's team, the Kansas City Chiefs, paraded to celebrate their Super Bowl win, shooters opened fire - ultimately injuring 22 people and killing one. Just over half of those injured were children.

"We have a pre-recorded episode for you guys coming up on Wednesday but after the tragic events at the Super Bowl parade in Kansas City, it didn't feel right without you hearing from us first," Travis, 34, said as he opened the video.

"We just wanted to say our hearts go out to all of the victims, their families, Chiefs kingdom and really all of Kansas City that was there on a day to try to celebrate the community," Jason, 36, added.

Travis also encouraged viewers to give as much as they may be able to afford to support victims of the shooting.

"Your donation goes toward supporting victims and their families, violence prevention and mental health services," he said.

Travis himself has donated $100,000 (£79,000) to the family of a pair of little girls who were injured during the incident.

His girlfriend, Taylor Swift, has also been generous, with the 34-year-old donating the same amount to the family of radio DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan, who was killed during the shooting.
