Former national footballer Arthur Lattimore has died.

Lattimore, who represented Jamaica in the 1970s, lost his battle with throat cancer at his home in Florida on Thursday.

Lattimore, who was known as one of Jamaica's most skilful left-sided players, represented Railway in the Division One competition in the 1960s. He was however revered for his exceptional play while representing Liguanea in the Major League competition in the 1970s.

More to come.
