We are saddened to hear about the passing of former England striker and FA Cup winner Cyrille Regis.
It was announced that the ex-West Bromwich Albion player, who won the Cup with Coventry City in 1987, had died aged 59 on Monday morning.
The FA would like to pass on its condolences to Cyrille's family and friends at this sad time.
Greg Clarke, FA chairman, said: “Everyone at the Football Association was shocked and saddened to hear of Cyrille Regis’ passing this morning, at just 59 years of age.
“Cyrille will not only be remembered across the West Midlands and England for his goalscoring exploits, but as someone who broke new ground and paved the way for a generation of young black players in this country during the 70s and 80s.
“He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans at this difficult time.”
