That this House notes the passing of footballer Cyrille Regis MBE at the age of 59; recognises his achievements as one of the most talented, dynamic and prolific footballers of the 1970s and 1980s and his huge popularity at the clubs he played at, in particular West Bromwich Albion and Coventry City where he spent the bulk of his career, as well as Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers, and in winning five caps for England; remembers his charisma on and off the pitch, and his tireless charity work following his retirement from playing; salutes his contribution to tackling racism in sport, and his status as a role model at a time when black players experienced severe racism; calls on the Governmment to redouble efforts to work with governing bodies and clubs to eradicate all racism in sport; and extends sincere sympathy to his family, his friends and all who mourn him.
