Roma president Franco Sensi dies after illness

ROME, August 18 (Serie A) - Roma have confirmed president Franco Sensi died on Sunday night at the age of 82.

The club's longest serving - and most successful - president had been unwell for a long period and had spent the past few weeks in the Gemelli Polyclinic Hospital in Rome undergoing treatment for respiratory problems.

He passed away at 11:35pm on Sunday night, surrounded by his family, and his body will be laid out in a chapel of rest near the Piazza del Campidoglio.

A brief statement on the Roma website read: "The president of Roma, Franco Sensi has passed away. President Sensi, who until the end was part of the great events at the club, helping take them to the top of the Italian and European rankings, passed away on Sunday night surrounded by his loved ones."

Tributes also flooded in from Roma's main rivals for a man who was one of the most respected figures in Italian football, with AC Milan and Juventus just two of the clubs to relay the news on their websites.

Sensi became joint president of Roma in May 1993, along with Pietro Mezzaroma, before taking sole control six months later.

He presided over one of Roma's most successful periods, as they won the Scudetto in 2001 for the first time in nearly 20 years, as well as finishing second five times since then and lifting two Coppa Italia trophies and two Italian Super Cups.

Sensi effectively handed over the running of the club to his daughter Rosella in 2004 due to his illness.

His funeral will take place on Wednesday.
