Former England captain Ray Wilkins has passed away at the age of 61.

The ex-Chelsea and Manchester United star suffered a cardiac arrest last week and spent his final days in an induced coma at a hospital in South London.

Capped 84 times for England, the former midfielder is most commonly associated with Chelsea, having spent six years there as a player as well as having numerous stints as assistant manager and one as caretaker boss.
