Colchester United's legendary manager Dick Graham has died.
Graham led the U's to one of the greatest FA Cup shocks of all time when they beat Leeds in 1971.
A family statement, issued to the club on Thursday evening said: "Dick has been unwell for some time now following a hip replacement operation in December.
"He appeared to recover well from that operation, but an underlying heart condition worsened in January and for the last three weeks or so he has been confined to bed.
"On Tuesday 5th March he went into a semi-coma and passed away, quite peacefully, this morning, Thursday 7th March, about 8.00am."
