    Gordon Banks: World Cup-winning goalkeeper dies aged 81

    England’s 1966 World Cup-winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks has died aged 81.


    Regarded as one of the game’s greatest in his position, Banks was named Fifa goalkeeper of the year six times and earned 73 caps for England.

    He is perhaps best known for his wonder save from Pelé during the 1970 World Cup against Brazil.
