English football in mourning over passing of Cyrille Regis

English football is in mourning after news of the passing of West Brom and Coventry legend Cyrille Regis. He was just 59.

The former striker died on Sunday night following a heart attack, reports the Birmingham Mail.

Regis started his career at the Hawthorns, going on to make 241 appearances for the Baggies, scoring 81 goals.

The French Guyana-born forward also won five caps for England between 1977-1984.

He moved to Coventry that same year, netting 47 times in seven seasons at Highfield Road.

Regis also played for Aston Villa and Wolves before retiring in 1996 after leaving Chester City.
