A number of people have paid tribute to Gary Speed.
The former Leeds United, Everton, Newcastle United, Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield United midfielder, 42, was found hanged in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Speed, who was appointed Wales manager in 2010, won 85 international caps for his country during his playing career, and was a hugely popular figure in the game.
"I'm devastated. He was a privilege to work alongside and call a friend," ex-Wales boss Mark Hughes told BBC Sport "My thoughts are with his family."
Speed’s former Leeds manager Howard Wilkinson said: "He had so much to offer as a person and as a sportsman. I just find it unbelievable.”
Dean Saunders, another ex-Wales colleague, added: "I just can't believe it. We roomed together all of our careers with Wales. I just can't get my head around it. It's incredible.”
Robbie Savage, meanwhile, said on Twitter: "The world has lost a great man in Gary Speed, I'm devastated, spoke to him yesterday morning. Why! Why. Why!!”
Speed was on BBC’s Football Focus on Saturday, and host Dan Walker tweeted: "Staggered by the news. Was with him for much of yesterday [Saturday]. I genuinely cannot believe it.”
