Man Utd legend 'totally devastated' by Speed death

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is 'totally devastated' by the news that Gary Speed has died, just 42-years-old.

Giggs and Speed were Wales team-mates and become good friends during their playing career.

"I am totally devastated," Giggs said. "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."
