The beautiful city of Paris, France, remains on a high alert as terrorism goes, and that isn’t likely to lift for two to three months, authorities say. In the meantime, an athlete-driven video has emerged among many heartfelt tributes that have poured online in the wake of those dreadful attacks.


The clip, titled “Je Suis Paris” (“I Am Paris”), is set to tranquil, spare music and shows black-and-white scenes of such notable locations as the Louvre, the Champs-Elysees, the Eiffel Tour, the Basilica of the Sacred Heart (Sacre Coeur) and the Notre Dame cathedral.


It features many sporting luminaries, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Carl Lewis, Allyson Felix, and Tony Parker. Also appearing are such tennis greats as Andre Agassi, Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova, Martina Navratilova, Pete Sampras and Grigor Dimitrov
