Former England Captain Jimmy Armfield Dies Aged 82
Former England football captain Jimmy Armfield has died from cancer at the age of 82, his club Blackpool FC confirmed.
Armfield was capped 43 times by England, 15 of them as captain, and made a club record 627 appearances for the Seasiders.
He later managed Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United, and was a BBC radio commentator for more than 35 years.
Tributes have poured in from the football world.
Man United legend Sir Bobby Charlton said, "I am deeply saddened by the death of Jimmy Armfield. "As an opponent, team-mate and friend he was, without doubt, one of the most honest and genuine gentlemen I had the good fortune to meet."
