Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton has died at the age of 86.

Charlton was part of England’s World Cup-winning side in 1966 and scored twice as Manchester United won the European Cup at Wembley in 1968.

“Manchester United are in mourning following the passing of Sir Bobby Charlton, one of the greatest and most beloved players in the history of our club.

“Sir Bobby was a hero to millions, not just in Manchester or the United Kingdom, but wherever football is played around the world,” a club statement reads in part.

After joining United as a schoolboy in 1953, Charlton won three successive FA Youth Cups from 1954 to 1956.

He made his professional debut that same year and won his first league title in the 1956–57 season, scoring 10 goals in 14 First Division appearances.
