• There are calls for a change in the rules so Gordon Banks can be posthumously knighted

There are calls for Gordon Banks to be knighted posthumously after he died aged 81.

A neighbour of Gordon Banks who knew him well and has been campaigning for him to be given a knighthood, is to carry on campaigning for a posthumous award.

Simon White awarded Gordon the freedom of the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme when he was mayor last year.

Even though according to the Cabinet Office, people cannot posthumously knighted, Simon is hoping for a change in the law.

TV presenter and personality Nick Hancock calls for England to win the World Cup in order to honour legendary goalkeeper Gordon Banks.

Nick who's from Stoke-on-Trent, knew Gordon for a number of years from both attending functions and events in the city.

Tributes continue to pour in outside the Bet 365 Stadium in honour of the former Stoke City goalkeeper.
