Former England captain Ray Wilkins has died at the age of 61.

The ex-Chelsea, Manchester United and Rangers midfielder suffered a heart attack last week and was placed in an induced coma.

He passed away in hospital in Tooting this morning.

Wilkins won 84 caps for the English national team - and led the side 10 times.

Many of his former clubs have paid tribute:
