Statement from Mark Klemens Molly's Manager.
"Molly's family have been overwhelmed by the support from so many people from Melbourne, the rest of Australia and internationally over the past few days. It has and continues to be a tough time for us all as we wait in hope that Molly gets through it all. Equally his family are humbled by this sign of support right in the heart of Melbourne. Molly has a soft spot for Fed Square and is so passionate about this town and his sport and I know would be equally humbled by this outward and impressive expression of support. On his behalf I say thank you."
