During his impressive 46-year career, Piggott managed 4,493 wins.

He sadly passed away this morning after spending time in hospital in Switzerland.

His cause of death or reason for his hospital admission has not been revealed.

The jockey, who rode more than 4,000 career wins and made the Derby his own between 1954 e 1983, is regarded as one of the best Flat riders of all time.

The Queen unveiled a statue in his honour at Epsom racecourse in 2019.

Outside of the saddle, he was famously convicted of tax fraud and sentenced to three years in prison in 1987.
