Published 11/03/13



SPORTS commentator Tony Gubba has died, aged 69, following a short illness.

He spent most of his career with the BBC and was a familiar voice on Grandstand and at the Olympics but in recent years had worked as summariser on ITV series Dancing On Ice.

Mr Gubba, who lived in Sonning, was the Daily Mirrorís north of England correspondent before joining BBC Sport in 1972, replacing David Coleman as the presenter of the midweek sports programme Sportsnight.

He went on to work on Match of the Day and also commentated on hockey, table-tennis, golf, tennis, bobsleigh, ski-jumping, darts and ice-skating for the BBC.

He covered every Olympic Games, both summer and winter, from 1972 to 2012 and every World Cup from 1974 to 2006.

Mr Gubba is survived by his partner of 15 years, Jenny, his two daughters, Claire, 40, and Libby, 38, and three granddaughters.

A full story will appear in this weekís Henley Standard.
