    Shocked when I saw it on twitter. Had he been ill? He looked okay on the telly during the Ashes last summer. Just checked; a short illness, apparently.

    Said a short illness. Family asked for donations to prostrate cancer fund, so perhaps that is related.

    RIP Bob, one of the great pundits (let alone as a player) who always told it how it was rather than sitting on the fence.

    RIP Bob. Big blue.

    Had the pleasure of chatting to him in Sri Lanka about City after a test match. Sad news, 70 is no age.
