RIP Gary Speed

Thousands of fans burst into spontaneous applause during a minute’s silence in Speed’s honour when Welsh club Swansea City played Aston Villa in a Premier League game at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium not long after the news of his death was announced, and thousands more paid their respects on Twitter and other social websites.

A minute’s silence was held at Anfield following the recent death from leukaemia of Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones’s five-year-old son Luca, as well as to mark Speed’s death.

Former Wales team mate Ryan Giggs said: “I am totally devastated. Gary Speed was one of the nicest men in football and someone I am honoured to call a team mate and friend.

“Words cannot begin to describe how sad I feel at hearing this awful news. It goes without saying my thoughts are with his family at this tremendously sad time.”

Everyone I've spoken to is just shocked. The impressions from everyone I've heard and seen on radio and TV in the last 24 hours is of a gentleman and a great professional.

I watched him live on BBC1's Football Focus on Saturday, and he seemed on top form. It's just hard to believe. The mind really is a dark place.
