David Coleman – widely acknowledged as the definitive voice of British sport – has died at the age of 87 after a short illness.
The commentator and presenter worked at the BBC for 50 years, covering some of the greatest sporting events of the 20th century, including the 1968 Mexico Olympics, the ill-fated Munich Olympics – where he broadcast for 30 hours during the siege by Palestinian terrorists – and numerous FA Cup and World Cup finals.
