AS Roma veteran Sebino Nela had a fight against cancer. I can't find out exactly what happened from my phone, but it seems he's okay for now:

Harry Gregg, a survivor of the tragic 1958 Munich Air Disaster which claimed the lives of eight of his team-mates, has died aged 87.

Dubbed the Hero of Munich, he rescued several people from the wreckage of the plane - including [Sir] Bobby Charlton, Jackie Blanchflower, Dennis Viollet and his brain-damaged manager, [Sir] Matt Busby.

Gregg's death means that only Charlton survives of the United players who were on the plane who didn't perish.

RIP Harry as a United fan know his great contribution to United’s history in the club’s darkest hour rescuing passengers from a burning plane wreckage incredible bravery from an incredible man tough as old boots was Harry they don’t make them like him anymore RIP. Now only Sir Bobby Charlton left from the 58 crash and he is looking frail and ill to me.

Agree 100%. RIP. To the the legend. Did he also turn out for them in their first match after the tragedy? Also he may have also made a big contribution in helping us win the World Cup in 1966 by saving Bobby.

Yes he did him and Bill Foulkes just 2 weeks after almost dying in the plane crash, it would never happen today they would be out for months having therapy etc, really was a different time. Harry Gregg really did have it hard as well as surviving the plane crash he apparently survived a major car crash, his wife died of cancer when he was in his 30’s and he had to bring his kids up on his own and his daughter died a few years ago aged 50 from Cancer. 
 

Also you could be right about helping England win the World Cup he was the one who got Bobby out.

Happy 52nd birthday to Kazuyoshi Miura, who is still playing professional football in the Japanese second tier. He is the only surviving player who was featured on Fifa 96 - which was released WHEN HE WAS 29. He made his professional football debut when Rudolf Hess and Rita Hayworth were still alive.

Gordon Cowans diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s.

 

He’s a friend of a friend & saw him about 3 or so years ago, & it was so sadly obvious he had some form of difficulty.

 

He’s now brave enough to go public & should be admired.  Cracking player for us in his day, & woefully underused by England.

 

Feel slightly hypocritical on having him on my list today.

Twitter awash with rumours that former Cardiff City stalwart Peter Whittingham has died aged 35, apparently after falling down the stairs. Seems to have originated from this thread on the Cardiff City forum. Nothing official but would be up there as one of the weirdest hoaxes...

Michael Chopra has tweeted his condolences, so it seems pretty real.

Everyone dying now people will wonder if it's coronavirus, but We've seen people collapsing around the world from it. It was only a matter of time before someone collapsed in the wrong place at the wrong time. That's if he had it and collapsed from it down the stairs .

The odds of him catching it and collapsing at the right time are a million to one. It's more likely – if this even happened – that he was drunk or tripped on something. Stairs kill plenty of healthy people.

According to the actuaries, you have a 1in 2700 chance of dying by falling down stairs. Slightly better odds than dying by drowning.
