Family, fans and footballers have bid a final farewell to Manchester United and England legend Sir Bobby Charlton.
About 1,000 mourners paid their respects to one of the game’s all-time greats at his funeral earlier.
Crowds lined the streets as the cortège arrived at Old Trafford to rounds of applause before it travelled on to Manchester Cathedral.
The Red Devils icon, who made 758 appearances for the club, died at the age of 86 on 21 October.
The Charlton family and friends were joined by leading figures from across football for the funeral service.
Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, and ex-players Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane, Steve Bruce, Paddy Crerand and Andy Cole were among those paying their respects.
Current players including Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw were also in attendance along with former manager and player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and England manager Gareth Southgate.
The Prince of Wales, who is president of the Football Association, also travelled to Manchester for the private service at the cathedral in the centre of the city.
The funeral cortège drove past the stadium’s East Stand and the United Trinity statue, which features Charlton, George Best and Denis Law.
Representatives of the club’s under-18 and under-21 teams formed a guard of honour flanking the statue.
Black and white photographs depicting Charlton’s career as a player and then a director at the club were on display outside the football ground.
The funeral procession then travelled to the city centre, arriving at the cathedral shortly after 14:00 GMT where mourners had gathered inside.
Former Manchester United chief executive David Gill, who read the first eulogy, described Charlton as a “legend, an icon and a very dear and loyal, much-loved colleague and friend”.
“Football is a tribal sport but Bobby was universally admired,” Gill said.
“Bobby’s name is synonymous with all that is good about the English game.” (BBC)
