MADRID — The Real Madrid legend Ferenc Puskas died on Friday. He was 79.

Nicknamed the Galloping Major, he won league titles with the Hungarian club Honved before moving to Real Madrid, with whom he also won five successive domestic and European Cup honours.

Puskas was part of what became known as the Magical Magyars, the Hungarian national side that sensationally beat England in 1953, the first foreign side to win at Wembley.

At the end of the last millennium, Puskas was named by the International Federation for Football History and Statistics as the 20th century's fourth best player.
