Wales has appointed Chris Coleman as successor to late national football team manager Gary Speed.

Former international defender Coleman, capped 32 times by Wales, has had managerial spells in charge of Fulham, Real Sociedad, Coventry City and Larissa in Greece.

Speed was found dead at his home last November in an apparent suicide.
