I thought he was a very competent sports commentator and have very happy memories of his TV appearances

Personally I did not understand his decision to get involved with 'Dancing On Ice' but I suppose everyone has to earn a living the best way they can Smile

One of the stalwarts when BBC showed sport rather than Antiques Roadshow and the like on a Saturday afternoon ....he was to be heard recently commentating on colours and sequins on costumes on Dancing On Ice and he sounded as if he had a smile on his face throughout!

As Helen said,sad news.

There was a lovely tribute to Tony on Football Focus today from a voice from the past, Gerald Sinstadt.
