Farewell Bob (1952-2008)

Former BBC Wales sports correspondent Bob Humphrys has died two months after he confirmed he had cancer.

Mr Humphrys, who was 56 and lived in Cardiff, passed away with his family at his bedside.

He had presented Wales Today's sports coverage for 20 years before taking early retirement this year. He was married with three children, and revealed his illness in an article written for the Daily Mail newspaper in June.

His brother John Humphrys, presenter of Radio 4's Today programme, said:
He was a great journalist and a great man and we will all miss him so much.
Pippa met him in the City Centre years ago and thought he was very charming and down to earth. A much-missed personality from Welsh television. Farewell Bob. Rest in Peace.
