    Pavel Srnicek: Former Newcastle keeper dies aged 47

    Former Newcastle United goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek has died at the age of 47, nine days after suffering a cardiac arrest in his native Czech Republic.
    A big favourite with fans during his first spell at St James' Park between 1991 and 1998, Srnicek collapsed while jogging on 20 December.
    He was taken to a hospital in Ostrava and placed in an induced coma.
    Srnicek, who also played for Sheffield Wednesday, Portsmouth and West Ham, made 49 appearances for his country.
    His agent, Steve Wraith, said the final brain scans on Monday had shown "irreversible damage" and the decision "had to be taken" to switch off the life support machine.
    Wraith added: "Pav passed away on the afternoon of Tuesday, 29 December 2015, with his family by his side."
