6:41 am on 30 November 2011

An inquest into the death of the Wales football manager Gary Speed has been told he was found hanged at his home by his wife.

The 42-year-old father-of-two was found at his home in Cheshire at the weekend.

Speed's death left the football world stunned, with former team-mates and fellow managers at a loss to explain why he'd taken his own life.

The inquest has been adjourned until the end of January.
