The statement read: “Gordon was an iconic figure not only in English football but across the globe and it’s deeply sad that we have lost him.

“It’s not just people of my generation who know how good a goalkeeper he was – people of all ages talked about Gordon reverentially. He was outstanding and it was an absolute privilege to watch him playing for Stoke City.

“He was also a keen advocate for our city, which he made his adopted home, and he will be sadly missed by local people from all walks of life, not just football fans.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to Gordon’s wife Ursula, his three children Robert, Wendy and Julia and the rest of the Banks family at this time.”
