World Cup-winning England midfielder Nobby Stiles has died aged 78 after a long illness.

The former Manchester United player had prostate cancer and advanced dementia.

Stiles is the seventh member of the England team that started the 1966 World Cup final against West Germany to die, after captain Bobby Moore, Alan Ball, Ray Wilson, Gordon Banks, Martin Peters and Jack Charlton.

Manchester-born Stiles was made an MBE in 2000.

A statement issued by his family said: "The Stiles family are sad to announce that Nobby Stiles passed away peacefully today surrounded by his family after a long illness.

Very sad news. A better player than he's given credit for.

Gutted to here that. He's part of my life, especially the 66 World Cup.

So sad, RIP Nobby. Never forget that day in 1966. I was 11 years old at the time and, gutted after Weber's 90th minute equaliser, I spent the whole of the extra time period of 30 minutes hiding in the outside toilet in the back yard. Couldn't bare the tension. Came in and was hugely relieved to see the victory celebrations. Never forget Nobby's toothless jig. Genuinely lovely bloke as well.
