John Charles was a Welsh football player, rated by many as the greatest all-round player ever to come from Britain. At the age of 72, Charles suffered a heart attack before an interview for Italian TV. Doctors had to amputate his foot for circulation reasons. He died in Pinderfields Hospital in West Yorkshire few weeks later.
