Jimmy Armfield: Football world mourns former England Captain and Blackpool great

World Cup winner, ex-England captain and Blackpool great Jimmy Armfield has died at the age of 82.

Armfield, who played 627 matches in 17 years for his only club and was part of Sir Alf Ramsey's victorious squad in 1966, was diagnosed with cancer for a second time last year.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Jimmy's wife Anne, his two sons, Duncan and John, and the rest of the Armfield family at this time.
