An inquest has heard that England and Manchester United footballer Sir Bobby Charlton passed away five days following a fall at his assisted living facility.

Chester Coroner’s Court in Warrington commenced the inquiry into the death of the 86-year-old World Cup 1966 team member on Wednesday.

A transcript of the court states that after the fall in which he broke his ribs, Sir Bobby was taken to Macclesfield Hospital.

He was brought to the hospital and given “end-of-life care” following his evaluation by medical professionals at The Willows assisted living facility.

“Traumatic hemopneumothrax, a fall, and Alzheimer’s dementia” were listed as the reasons of death.

According to the paper, on October 16, 2023, retired Manchester United icon Sir Bobby Charlton had a fall at his care home and was taken to Macclesfield Hospital at the age of 86.

“He was shaky on his feet and fell into a window sill, breaking many ribs in the process.

Since July 2023, he had been a resident of The Willows, first for temporary housing during his final two months of life.

After the fall, he kept moving as usual until it was discovered that his back was swollen.

“He was examined by the home’s GP and transported to hospital where he was placed on end-of-life care and sadly passed away on 21 October 2023 at 03:50 hours.”

Manchester United have confirmed that a memorial service celebrating Sir Bobby’s life will take place at Manchester Cathedral at 2pm on Monday November 13.

The procession to the service will pass by Old Trafford, where he is immortalised alongside Denis Law and George Best in the United Trinity statue.

United said in a statement: “The service will pay tribute to Sir Bobby’s incredible life as a husband, father, grandfather and, of course, as one of the finest footballers this country has ever produced.
