John’s son, BBC star and Strictly winner Chris Hollins, said: “John was always so modest about the role he played in Chelsea’s history.
“He was only 15 when he signed for the club and went on to win trophies in those incredible sides of the ’60s and ’70s.
“He had so many stories, but he always told us he just loved running out at the Bridge and wearing that famous blue shirt.
“We will miss him as a husband, a father and grandfather and will always be proud of what he achieved in the game.”
We send our condolences to his family and friends at this time, may he rest in peace Amen.
