Jeno Buzanszky, the last surviving member of Hungary’s Golden Team of the 1950s, has died at age 89.

The former Olympic champion and World Cup runner-up passed away in hospital in Esztergom in northern Hungary on Sunday night.

Buzanszky played as right back for Hungary and he was a member of the team at the England – Hungary game played in London in 1953 that was later dubbed “the match of the century”.

He received the sportsman of the nation award in 2011 and he was elected a member of the Association of Immortal Hungarian Sportspeople last November.
