International soccer great Johan Cruyff is dead at age 68.
Cruyff had been battling lung cancer since at least October but remained optimistic about his fight. He said in February it felt like he was "2-0 up in a match" against cancer.
Cruyff was a longtime member of the 1970s Dutch national team, and the center forward is credited with helping revolutionize the modern game with his "Total Football" style.
