Veteran BBC sports broadcaster David Vine has died of a heart attack at the age of 73.

Vine fronted a huge list of shows, including Match of the Day, A Question of Sport, Grandstand and Ski Sunday.


_______________

I used to watch him on Ski Sunday and as a Snooker commentator. Did he never receive a Queens honour?

RIP.

You beat Iain Smith to it! Shocked
I haven't yet heard anyone mention it yet, but David Vine was also an early question master on A Question Of Sport when it was a much more serious quiz than it is nowadays.
