Manchester United and England legend Nobby Stiles has died at the age of 78, his family have announced.

The midfielder won two First Division titles and a European Cup with United in 1968, as well as a World Cup alongside former Irish boss Jack Charlton in 1966.

Stiles had been suffering from dementia for a number of years.

Stiles joined Manchester United as a teenager in 1960, going on to make more than 300 appearances for the club, and forming a key part of their glory years under Matt Busby, culminating in their European Cup success against Benfica in 1968.

It was at Manchester United where he formed a lifelong friendship with Republic of Ireland legend John Giles, with the pair becoming brothers-in-law after Stiles married Giles's sister.

He was also an integral part of the England side that lifted the World Cup on home soil in 1966, playing every minute of their campaign. He is the third member of that England side to pass away in 2020 after Jack Charlton in July, and Norman Hunter in April.

Last week, the families of both Stiles and Charlton gave their backing to further research into the role sport and repeated blows to the head play in dementia.
