At just 5ft 6ins, Gianfranco Zola packed an enormous amount of talent into a tiny frame.
The Italian striker was loved at home and in his adopted England for his incredible technique and vision and for the fact that he invariably played the game with a smile on his face.
Spells at Napoli and Parma confirmed his footballing class, prompting Chelsea to pay £4.5 million for his services in 1996.
He enjoyed a magical seven-year spell in west London and was voted the club's best ever player by the fans in 2003 – the same year he was awarded an honorary OBE.
For Italy, he hit 10 goals in 35 appearances.
A less successful career as a manager has followed for Zola, but he remains one of the most popular players Italy has ever produced and England has ever enjoyed.
