Leeds United great Norman Hunter has died in hospital aged 76 after contracting coronavirus.


The tough-tackling centre-back, nicknamed ‘Bites Yer Legs’, was a key player in Leeds’ most successful era.
He won two league titles during a 14-year first-team career at Elland Road, and was a non-playing member of England’s 1966 World Cup-winning Squad.


Hunter was admitted to hospital on April 10 after testing positive for coronavirus. Leeds said Hunter’s death leaves ‘a huge hole’ in the family of the club.


“His legacy will never be forgotten and our thoughts are with Norman’s family and friends at this very difficult time,” the club said in a statement. 


The defender, who joined Leeds aged 15, went on to play 726 matches in all competitions for the club, the fourth-highest individual total in their history. (BBC)
