Muffat and two other French sports personalities were killed on Tuesday when a helicopter they were flying in crashed in Argentina. Seven other people also died in the accident.

The swimmer-who won three medals at the London 2012 Olympics-was filming a television programme in South America along with 28-year-old boxer Alexis Vastine and 57-year-old sailor Florence Arthaud.

Nice-born Muffat was a fan of Les Aiglons and the club have dedicated Friday night’s match to her memory according to France Football. The hashtag #CamilleUnaDiNoi will be used on social media during the match.
