Northern Ireland legend Pat Jennings has added his tribute to his good friend Jack Charlton, as the football family continues to mourn the passing of the Republic of Ireland, England and Leeds United hero.

Close friends and family will say an emotional farewell to 'Big Jack' at his funeral service in Newcastle on Tuesday.
