The Lazio legend passed away in Florida in April 2012 but complications held up the return of Chinalglia's body to Rome where he requested to be buried. His wife Connie and children George Jnr, Cynthia and Stephanie accompanied Giorgio on  the flight from Boston this morning.

Waiting for Giorgio were fans and former teammates Pino Wilson and Giancarlo Oddi while Chinaglia's coffin was draped in Lazio colours. There will be a service tomorrow at the Chiesa del Cristo Re at 3pm then Chinaglia will placed next to Tommaso Maestrelli in his family tomb.

Giorgio's son, Geoge Jnr told reporters: "I am happy, my father can rest in peace". Wife Connie said: "I'm so excited, this is just the beginning".
