Sad to be waking up to news of Cyrille Regis's death. A childhood footballing hero of mine, a Sky Blue & FA cup '87 legend, the classic big fella up front and genuinely nice man. #PUSB pic.twitter.com/cP8fDupUTj

Cyrille Regis has died. Can’t believe it. A footballing trailblazer along with Brendon Batson and Laurie Cunningham. ‘The Three Degrees’ paved the way for black footballers in this country. One of the finest centre-forwards of his day. RIP
