FIFA president Sepp Blatter says that his "thoughts" are with the family of Gary Speed, who hanged himself a year ago today.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has sent his support to the late Gary Speed's family as they mark a year since the former Wales manager passed away.

The 42-year-old was found hanged at his home in Cheshire 12 months to the day and Chris Coleman, who replaced Speed as manager of the Welsh national side, has also paid tribute to the ex-Bolton Wanderers player.

Blatter tweeted: "Thoughts with Gary Speed's family one year on from his passing. Sadly missed by the game he served with such distinction."

Speed spent one year at the helm of the Wales team.
