As well as being one of the stars of the World Cup winning side in 1966, Banks also helped the Potters to victory in the League Cup in 1972.

In the House of Commons today, Jeremy Corbyn sent condolences to his friends and family, describing him as "one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time".

While, in echoing Banks' standing in the world of football, Theresa May added that he'd also carried out a lot of community work in Staffordshire.
