    He was 100. Should have been vaccinated already, but first he was on holiday, and then he was on medication for pneumonia.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    The start of the so-called pundits with Greaves so he has a lot to answer for. Likeable though.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    RIP Marvellous Marvin Hagler.

    Thanks for perhaps the greatest round in boxing history.

    When the referee paused the action in the third round to check if Hagler's cuts were too bad and the blood in his eyes was a concern, the story goes that he asked Hagler 'Can you see him?', and Hagler's response was 'I'm hitting him aint I?', before knocking Hearns out in the same round.

    Actor Paul Ritter, 54. His repeated exasperated cry of '5hit on it' from Friday Night Dinner doesn't come close to responding to this news.

    Prince Philip, aged 99.

    So old that when he was born in Greece, they were still using the Julian calendar, so he was born on 28th May in Greece, which was 10th June in the rest of Europe.
