Words cannot begin to describe how sad I feel at hearing this awful news. My thoughts are with his family at this tremendously sad time," The Sun quoted Giggs, as saying.
Welsh Football Association President Phil Pritchard said: "I am completely shocked by this terrible news and my thoughts are with his family. We will do whatever we can as an association to help them in this difficult time."
"It is a sad, sad day. I played with him when I came through the ranks. He helped me through. He was an absolute machine - the best professional in football," defender Steven Taylor said.
"He had that aura about him. He always had time for the young lads and helped them feel good about themselves," he added.
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce, described him as 'a great lad', who was always eager to learn.
