Former England Midfielder And Ray Wilkins Dies After Cardiac Arrest by Snails: 6:16pm On Apr 04, 2018
Chelsea legend Ray Wilkins has died in hospital aged 61 after suffering a heart attack and fall last week, his family have confirmed.
Wilkins was placed into an induced coma and remained in critical condition at St George's Hospital until he died on Wednesday morning.
"It is with great sadness that we announce that Raymond Colin Wilkins passed away this morning," a family statement read. "We'd like to thank St George's staff for the amazing work they've done to care for our beloved Ray.
"We'd also like to say thank you for the many goodwill messages we've received from Ray's friends, colleagues, and members of the public.
"We're asking for privacy at this difficult time."
Wilkins played for Chelsea, Manchester United, Milan, QPR and Rangers in a professional career that lasted 24 years and yielded 84 England caps. He also enjoyed two spells as assistant manager at Stamford Bridge, where he remained a regular presence on matchdays long after his dismissal in November 2010.
An accomplished midfielder on the pitch and a jovial character off it, Wilkins proved a popular figure wherever he went and news of his death prompted an outpouring of tributes from across the football world.
"Everybody associated with Chelsea Football Club is devastated to learn of the passing of our former player, captain and assistant coach, Ray Wilkins," the Premier League champions said on Twitter. "Rest in peace, Ray, you will be dreadfully missed."
