Groundbreaking Rugby League star Dave Bolton has died at the age of 83.
The iconic Wigan Warriors stand-off played more than 300 games at the club before taking his talent to Balmain Tigers in Australia.
He won two Challenge Cups at Wigan and recorded eight appearances for Great Britain, as well as being part of the home Ashes winning team of 1960.
In a statement, Wigan Warriors called Bolton a 'legend'.
A spokesman for the club said: "It is with great sadness we learn the passing of Wigan and Great Britain legend, Dave Bolton.
"The former stand-off, who made 300 appearances for the Club, has died at the age of 83. Our thoughts are with Dave’s family and friends at this very sad time."
Bolton died in Australia, where he has lived since moving there in the 1960s.
He was among the first British players to find success in Australia and was awarded the Clive Churchill Medal retrospectively when Australian Rugby League celebrated its centenary in 2008.
In 2005, he was inducted into the Balmain Tigers Hall of Fame.
Ralph Rimmer, the RFL Chief Executive, said: “Dave Bolton’s career records speak for themselves. He won the Ashes with Great Britain, he won Challenge Cups and the Championship with Wigan, and then he was one of the first British players to enjoy success in Australia.
“I know he will be mourned by his former Wigan and Great Britain team-mates, and by supporters of Wigan and other clubs who remember watching him play. We send our deep condolences to his family and friends, and give thanks for his life and his contribution to Rugby League.”
