Eight years ago to the day, Sir Bobby Robson passed away following a long battle with cancer.
The County Durham-born football manager was 76 years old when he succumbed to the disease.
Robson is remembered fondly across the world of football, particularly at a club in the North-East of England.
Newcastle United had the experienced coach as their boss between 1999 and 2004, and it would turn out to be his final job in management.
The Magpies paid tribute to Robson on social media, and the post attracted plenty of attention from football fans of all clubs.
On this day in 2009, Sir Bobby Robson sadly passed away.

As well as managing Newcastle in his career, Robson took charge of England in 1982 and led the team to the 1990 World Cup semi-final.
With regards to club level in the UK, the former West Bromwich Albion player coached Fulham and Ipswich Town.
Plenty of his work was overseas, though, as he had spells at PSV Eindhoven, Sporting Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona.
Robson won 13 trophies at four different clubs in his career, including the FA Cup with Ipswich Town and two Eredivisie titles at PSV.
