    I was helicoptered out to the Ninian South oil platform that day so missed it live having witnessed Botham's heroics on the telly the previous day.

    Should've pulled a sicky.

    Oh gosh, how sad. Thinking about it, he didn't look great the last time I saw him on Sky but I hadn't read anything into that.

    Very sad news.
    I enjoyed listening to him and found him very acerbic.
    Unforgettable match in '81.
    RIP Bob.

    Very erudite man but highly critical of fools. Something that is not a welcome trait in this modern world.
