Former England football manager Graham Taylor has died. He was 72.

A family statement said: "With the greatest sadness, we have to announce that Graham passed away at his home early this morning of a suspected heart attack. The family are devastated by this sudden and totally unexpected loss."

Taylor managed England from 1990 until 1993. He was a club manager at Lincoln, Watford, Aston Villa and Wolves, and in recent years a pundit on the BBC and BT Sport.

A fly-on-the-wall Channel 4 documentary 'An Impossible Job' told the story of his time in charge of the England team and gave rise to his catchphrase "Do I not like that."
