Murray Walker, one of the greatest British Formula 1 commentators in history passed away at age 97. His commentary was absolutely exceptional and energetic in the 90s and early 2000s. Godspeed good sir  :-(

Tough loss.  During an era where boxing was a big deal; Hagler-Hearns first round is one where you could watch it 12 times in a row, and it'll be more worth it than several boxing matches today.
