Former Leyton Orient midfielder Ray Wilkins has died at the age of 61.

Wilkins was a regular pundit for both Talksport and Sky Sports and carried out media duties for both outlets shortly before suffering a cardiac arrest and he was taken to St George's Hospital on Friday, where he was placed into an induced coma.

The 61-year-old, known by his childhood nickname Butch, won 84 England caps and was well known from his association with Chelsea, who he represented both as a player and coach. On one occasion, he even led the side on a caretaker basis and Wilkins also enjoyed successful spells with the likes of Watford, QPR, Aston Villa and Fulham as a coach.

During his career as a player, Wilkins represented 12 sides, winning the FA Cup with Manchester United in 1983 and the Scottish title with Rangers in 1989.

The 61-year-old also enjoyed a brief spell with Leyton Orient before he retired in 1997 and the O’s said this afternoon: “The club are saddened to hear of the passing of Ray Wilkins. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.”
