Published Add your comment

Football has paid its tributes to Gary Speed on the first anniversary of the death of the former Wales manager.

Former Leeds, Everton, Newcastle, Bolton and Sheffield United midfielder Speed was found dead at his Cheshire home at the age of 42, provoking an outpouring of grief for a man liked and respected throughout the football community.

Staff at the Football Association of Wales, including current Wales boss Chris Coleman, met on Tuesday to remember Speed at the governing body's headquarters in Cardiff. Flowers were laid while an image of Speed outside the building was lit up.
