Private funeral held for Robson

LONDON (AP) Former England manger Bobby Robson was buried Wednesday at a private funeral service in his native northeast England.

The service at an undisclosed location was attended by Robson's widow Elsie and the couple's three sons, Andrew, Paul and Mark.

The 76-year-old Robson died last Friday after a long struggle with cancer.

"Sir Bobby Robson was laid to rest today at a private family service," a family statement said. "Lady Robson has been overwhelmed by the wonderful tributes and messages of condolence and is very grateful that the family's privacy has been respected at this sad time."
