Gordon Banks, one of the world's most famous goalkeepers, passed away Tuesday at the age of 81.
One of the draw assistants at the Russian Federation 2018 Final Draw, Banks shone at both Leicester City and Stoke City, making over 600 appearances between both clubs and winning the League Cup with the both.
Three-time World Cup victor Pele said on social media: "I have great sadness in my heart today and I send condolences to the family he was so proud of. We are devastated to lose him but we have so many happy memories and could not have been more proud of him".
During his global career, he won 73 caps and played in two World Cups, and between 1966 and 1971 he was named Fifa's Goalkeeper Of The Year for six consecutive years.
His status as an all-time great may have been sealed at the 1966 World Cup, but it was the save Gordon Banks produced to deny Pele four years later which became his defining moment on the global stage. "We had some great goalkeepers in those days, and the only person I can think who came near was Pat Jennings".

Four years later at the next World Cup in Mexico, Banks scurried across his line and dived to his right in an attempt to stop a downward header from Pele.
However, it was a moment of brilliance from Banks in denying Pele what looked a certain goal during the first half which would see both men forever linked in football folklore.
Banks, who revealed in 2016 that he was battling kidney cancer for the second time, died peacefully overnight at the age of 81.
The game, however, will always be remembered for a save widely acclaimed as the greatest in World Cup history.
"On behalf of FIFA and the whole football community, I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to Gordon's friends and family".
