Speed's family overwhelmed by support

The family of Gary Speed have said that they are 'overwhelmed by the support' they have received since the death of the Wales boss on Sunday.

Wales manager Gary Speed was found dead at his home near Cheshire on Sunday aged 42.

Speed's agent and the best man at the 42-year-old's wedding, Hayden Evans, said: "Gary's family would sincerely like to thank all the people that have sent messages of condolence and tributes in what is a very difficult time.

"We have been overwhelmed by the support and it really has helped.

"We would ask that the family are now given the respect of some privacy to just grieve on their own."
