England's World Cup-Winning Goalkeeper Dies Aged 81

Gordon Banks, one of the world's most famous goalkeepers, passed away Tuesday at the age of 81.

Banks was part of the England team that won the 1966 World Cup and was credited with making the "Save of the Century" when he denied Brazilian great Pele at the tournament four years later.

His death was confirmed by his former club Stoke City which tweeted a statement from his family.

"It is with great sadness that we announce that Gordon passed away peacefully overnight," the statement read.

"We are devastated to lose him but we have so many happy memories and could not have been more proud of him."
