John Motson: Legendary commentator dies aged 77

We are deeply saddened to announce that legendary commentator John Motson has died at the age of 77.

John Motson, also known as Motty, was remembered for his work within the BBC where he was a commentator for Match of the Day for many years.

A lot of football fans will remember his infamous commentary for the famous Gazza goal at EURO 96.

He also covered more than 200 England matches and commentated on almost 2,500 televised games.

He became an OBE in 2001 for his services to sports broadcasting.

Rest in peace John, you were a credit to the sport and will be forever missed by all of us at Football Post!
