Jimmy Greaves' innate goalscoring talent saw him break both club and country records during a career which made him the best marksman of his generation and one of the best of all time.
There is little footage of the East Ham-born striker beating keepers with drives from outside the area or with spectacular headers after meeting crosses from team-mates, but instead there is plenty showing him rounding defenders before sliding home from close range.
By his own admission, Greavsie, as he is affectionately known, did not score great goals or spend lots of time practising his positioning or finishing but his record 357 in 514 league games tells its own story.
Greaves' instinctive, natural gift, as he himself described it, of being able to put the ball in the net saw him finish as top scorer in the English first division on six different occasions, a record that still stands today.
So deft was the forward when passing defenders and beating goalkeepers that one newspaper described his style as the football equivalent of closing the door on a Rolls Royce.
A successful television career after his retirement made him a household with his wit and acerbic comments on the Saint and Greavies Saturday morning show.
For those fortunate enough to have seen Greaves in his prime are full of nothing but praise and admiration for his ability and finishing and even long after he has retired it is testament to him that he is still considered to be one of the best.
