Former England international Ray Wilkins dies aged 61 in hospital after suffering a heart attack

Wilkins was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting, London last week after suffering a cardiac arrest and was placed in an induced coma.

He leaves behind his wife Jackie.

Wilkins, who has bravely battled poor health including ulcerative colitis over the last few years, was given the all clear after a double heart bypass operation last July.

Two years ago he checked into the Priory Hospital in Woking for a five-week rehabilitation programme after being banned from driving for four years for drink-driving.

Yet the popular former Chelsea, Manchester United and AC Milan midfielder continued to work in the media on a regular basis and was held in the highest regard by everyone in football.
