Full Report: Sir Bobby Robson Foundation passes the five million mark on its fifth birthday

The aim of the charity's campaign was to raise half a million pounds, but today his foundation has passed the five million pound mark.

Sir Bobby's wife, Lady Elsie, has never spoken publicly since Sir Bobby's death - until today.

Lady Elsie says that he would have been humbled by what has been achieved.
