After a long battle with cancer, Sir Bobby Robson has died aged 76.
Sir Bobby was a true gent and one of the most successful football managers of all time, spending time at both Fulham and Ipswich before taking the role as England Coach.
Following his successful stint as England manager he managed several of Europe's finest clubs PSV Eindhoven, Sporting Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona.
He then spent many years at the club he supported as a child when he took over the helm at Newcastle United. After leaving the magpies he worked as an Advisor to the Republic of Ireland National team working closely with former Villa player Steve Staunton.
In 2002, he was knighted by the Queen in her Birthday Honours List.
A statement issued on behalf of his family said 'It is with great sadness that it has been announced today that Sir Bobby Robson has lost his long and courageous battle with cancer.
'He died very peacefully this morning at his home in County Durham with his wife and family beside him'.
The flags at Wembley Stadium, Portman Road and the FA's Headquaters in Soho Square, are all flying at half mast.
Rest in Peace, Sir Bobby. A true footballing legend.
