Gary Speed remembered

8:12 am on 28 November 2011

Tributes are flowing in for the manager of the Welsh national football team, Gary Speed, who has been found dead at his home in North West England.

The Welsh Football Association says the 42-year-old appears to have taken his own life.

Speed made his name at Leeds United and played a key role in their first division title success in 1992.

He went on to play for Everton, Newcastle, Bolton and Sheffield United before being named manager of Wales in December last year.

Former Welsh international team-mate Robbie Savage says he'll be remembered for his achievemnets on and off the field.

Speed, who was honoured with an MBE for services to football last year, is survived by his wife and two sons.
