LEGENDARY England goalkeeper Gordon Banks, who won the World Cup at Wembley in 1966, has died aged 81.

Banks visited Hereford to experience the IBSA World Blind Football Championship, which was held at the Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) in 2010.

It was the first time he had watched blind football.

"It has been wonderful and I have been very surprised at the skill that has been portrayed," said Banks at the time of the event.

"It has been well organised with lovely facilities. When you think these players have travelled from around the world, it is incredible.

"This is the first time I have ever seen blind football and it has been absolutely spectacular."
