Former Southampton player and manager Alan Ball has died aged 61.
Ball who was also part of the England World Cup Winning team of 1966 died of a heart attack.
Sir Geoff Hurst told the BBC: 'He was the youngest member of the team and man of the match in the 1966 World Cup final.
'Socially he was always a good laugh and the 1966 team mixed a lot after then.'
'We are all totally devastated.'
Lawrie McMenemy added: 'He was my guest at St Mary's on Saturday and I should have been playing golf with him this morning.'
'We were very, very good friends.
