The FAI has opened an online book of condolence which will be presented to the family of Jack Charlton after the news of his death was announced yesterday.

The former Ireland manager passed away at the age of 85 and the FAI has today issued a statement which says: 'The Football Association of Ireland is deeply saddened by the death of our former manager Jack Charlton.

'We invite supporters to extend their sympathies to Jack’s family as we remember his great service to Irish football. We will share these messages with the Charlton family, after we close the Virtual Book of Condolences on Monday, July 27th.

Charlton managed the Ireland soccer team for a decade between 1986 and 1996, leading the country to its first three major championships - Euro 88 and the World Cups in 1990 and 1994. Both World Cup appearances resulted in Ireland reaching the knockout stages.

You can sign the online book of condolence for Jack Charlton here.
