BREAKING Norman Hunter dies aged 76 as Leeds legend succumbs to coronavirus

Legendary Leeds United defender Norman Hunter has died aged 76 after losing his battle with coronavirus.

Hunter, who made more than 700 appearances for Leeds over 13 seasons, tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month and was in NHS care.

The club broke the new in a statement which read: "Leeds United are devastated to learn of the passing of club icon Norman Hunter at the age of 76.

"Norman was taken to hospital last week after being diagnosed with COVID-19 and despite continuing to battle and the best efforts of NHS staff, he sadly lost his fight earlier this morning.

A very skilful player, was only watching the Arsenal v Leeds 1972 FA cup final last night, for me the 1970/1/2 Leeds team was one of the greatest English sides ever.
R.I.P Norman.
