Cyrille Regis, the former West Bromwich Albion and England forward, has died aged 59 after suffering a suspected heart attack last night.

In a stellar career, Regis also played for Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Wycombe Wanderers and Chester City.

He was appointed an MBE in 2008, and returned to West Brom as coach before going on to become a football agent.

Regis, who was voted West Brom's all time cult hero in a 2004 poll, passed away on Sunday evening.

Regis played five times for England and was the third black player to receive a senior cap for the Three Lions, following in the footsteps of Viv Anderson and Cunningham.
