WATCH: Funeral held for England goalkeeper Gordon Banks

Football stars from across the game have paid tribute to England World Cup winner Gordon Banks at his funeral.

Thousands of fans lined the streets of Stoke to pay their respects and say goodbye to the legendary goalkeeper.

He passed away last month at the age of 81.

Team-mates from England’s 1966 World Cup-winning side joined mourners to pay a final farewell on Monday.

Sir Geoff Hurst, Sir Bobby Charlton, Roger Hunt and George Cohen were among those in attendance from Sir Alf Ramsey’s famous Three Lions side.

Sir Geoff said in a moving eulogy:'”He was a superstar on the field but, quite frankly, off the field he was not a superstar at all.

‘He was a very ordinary guy, never had any airs and graces, and that was one of the beautiful things about Banksy.

‘He was a joker, a funny man, and every time we met he would come up and joke.’

Banks started his career at Chesterfield before moving onto Leicester and Stoke City.

A guard of honour featuring Stoke City players past and present was formed at the club’s stadium, where fans watched the service on a big screen.

Supporters gathered in the stands chanted ‘England’s number one’ as the five-car cortege passed through the football ground to loud applause.

The funeral service ended with a recording of the song My Way performed by Frank Sinatra.
