Jack Charlton: 1966 England World Cup winner dies aged 85

Jack Charlton, a World Cup winner with England and former Republic of Ireland boss, has died aged 85.

The former Leeds defender had been diagnosed with lymphoma in the last year and also had dementia.

One of English football’s most popular characters, he was in the team that won the World Cup at Wembley in 1966, alongside his brother Bobby.

A family statement read:Jack died peacefully on Friday, July 10 at the age of 85. He was at home in Northumberland, with his family by his side.

”As well as a friend to many, he was a much-adored husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

”We cannot express how proud we are of the extraordinary life he led and the pleasure he brought to so many people in different countries and from all walks of life.

”He was a thoroughly honest, kind, funny and genuine man who always had time for people.

”His loss will leave a huge hole in all our lives but we are thankful for a lifetime of happy memories.”
