Burnley great Jimmy Robson has died at the age of 82, the Premier League club have announced.

Posting on Twitter his daughter Dany Robson said: "My dad, my mate, my hero. Cheeky, funny, practical joker, brilliant company, a top story teller - an absolute treasure."

“The Clarets legend won the First Division with Burnley in 1960 and made 242 appearances.

“The thoughts of everyone at Turf Moor are with Jimmy’s family and friends.”
