Newcastle are to honour former manager Sir Bobby Robson by unveiling a new statue at St James' Park.

The nine-and-a-half-foot bronze sculpture will stand at the south-west corner of the stadium.

It will be unveiled before the Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester City on Sunday, May 6 with Sir Bobby's widow, Lady Elsie, and her family in attendance.
