On Monday, the football community came together to celebrate the life of football personality and SBS TV broadcaster Les Murray at a State Funeral in Sydney.
Around 1000 family, friends and football lovers gathered at St Mary’s Cathedral to pay their respects on an day filled with laughter and tears.
Murray - the face of SBS’s football coverage for so many years and synonymous with football in this country - passed away last month at the age of 71.
The eulogy was given by SBS TV's Ken Shipp, who described Murray as a "mate" after working with him for over 25 years.
Murray's co-workers at SBS and his own family also were in attendance with a touching video featuring his daughters played during the service.
The tributes weren't just from local football identities with FIFA boss Gianni Infantino and British broadcaster Martin Tyler also recording tribute videos.
New South Wales premier Gladys Berejiklian and Governor David Hurley were among those in attendance, along with a host of current and former Australian football greats.
Caltex Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou and Westfield Matildas boss Alen Stajcic were also in attendance.
The Australian and NSW flags flew at half-mast across the city in tribute to Murray, who left an indelible mark on football.
