Munich Hero Gregg Passes Away

Northern Ireland legend was aged 87

Former Manchester United and Northern Ireland goalkeeper Harry Gregg has passed away at the age of 87.

Gregg was often referred to as the "Hero of Munich" after helping pull survivors from the wreckage of the 1958 air disaster, in which 23 people died.

He also won 25 international caps and helped Northern Ireland reach the quarter-finals of the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, where he was named goalkeeper of the tournament.
