Former Yorkshire and England captain Brian Close has died at the age of 84.
Close became the youngest player ever to win a Test cap for England when he made his debut against New Zealand in 1949 as an 18-year-old.
The famously brave batsman went on to lead his country seven times in 22 Tests, and also captained his native county to win four county championship titles.
