David Coleman has Passed Away


I have just heard that David Coleman, the sports broadcaster, has passed away, aged 87

Quite simply David Coleman was a GIANT in his field. He practically invented sports broadcasting in Britain, and everyone who has ever had a interest in sports from say 1956 to 2006 will have their own special memories that he brought into our living rooms.

For me the 1968 Olympics from Mexico, and then the world cup from Mexico in 1970 will always live in the memory.

And then there was that tragic Olympics from Munich that he brought to us in such detail.

Thank you, Mr C for all the sheer enjoyment and memories you brought into all of our lives.


David Coleman - Broadcaster - 1926 - 2013    RIP.
