London:

England World Cup winner and former Republic of Ireland manager Jack Charlton is to undergo surgery after breaking his hip in a fall at home, reports said on Friday.

Charlton, 76, suffered the fracture after falling down the stairs at his home earlier this week, the Daily Mirror quoted his son as saying.

"The stairs in his house are a bit tricky and awkward and he basically fell down them on Monday night," he told the paper.

Charlton was a member of England's 1966 World Cup-winning team, playing alongside brother Sir Bobby Charlton.

He later enjoyed a successful career in international management, feted in Ireland for leading the country to the World Cups in 1990 and 1994.
