Manchester United legend George Best has died at the age of 59 after failing to recover from internal bleeding.
Best has spent almost eight weeks in Cromwell Hospital in West London after initially being admitted with a kidney infection.
Earlier this month the former Northern Ireland international had shown an improvement in his condition and was taken off a ventilator.
However, he was readmitted to intensive care last week with breathing difficulties and his condition had gradually worsened in recent days.
Bestís physician Professor Roger Williams had grown increasingly concerned over the past couple of days and conceded on Thursday lunchtime that his patient was living through his final hours.
During a glittering playing career, Best was an Old Trafford hero and helped the club to win the European Cup against Benfica in 1968.
He also picked up the European Footballer of the Year accolade the same year and scored a plethora of memorable goals.
Farewell George, thaks for the memories.
