  • Cyrille Regis has died at the age of 59 after suffering a heart attack.

Former England striker Cyrille Regis has died aged 59 following a cardiac arrest with the Professional Footballers' Association announcing the sad news of his passing on Monday morning.

The attacker then moved to Coventry, bagging 238 league appearances and 47 goals.

Regis, who passed away following a cardiac arrest on Sunday, won the last of what should have been far more than five global caps in 1987, the year in which he also won the FA Cup with Coventry City.

Together with Brendon Batson and the late Laurie Cunningham, Regis formed part of a West Brom trio nicknamed "The Three Degrees" by manager Ron Atkinson after the American female singers visited The Hawthorns.

Regis also played for clubs like Coventry City, Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers during a 19-year professional playing career. His first senior game came in the 1982 British Home Championship, coming off the bench in a 4-0 win over Northern Ireland.

Cyrille Regis had worked as a coach and later a football agent after retiring from the game in 1996.

TRIBUTES DEDICATED to Cyrille Regis are pouring in, following news of his death.
