Former English footballer Colin Bell died Tuesday after a short illness at the age of 74. This was announced by his former club Manchester City, in whose jersey he played 492 matches and scored 152 goals.
"Colin left peacefully after a non-coronavirus disease. He was survived by his wife Marie and children Jon and Dawn, grandchildren Luke, Mark, Isla and Jack," the citizens said in a statement.
