Chelsea legend Peter Bonetti has passed away aged 78 after a long battle with illness.


The former England international, who was affectionately known as The Cat, won seven caps for his country and was part of the Blues side that won the FA Cup in 1970.

Bonetti is the second all-time appearance maker for the Blues, behind only Ron Harris, after featuring in 729 matches from 1959 to 1979, while he kept 208 clean sheets, surpassed only recently by Petr Cech in 2014.

A statement from the Blues read: “Chelsea Football Club is hugely saddened to announce the passing today of one of our indisputably all-time great players, Peter Bonetti.
