Aw, that's really sad news. RIP Henry.

Just going off topic for a mo here but yesterday 'whispering' Ted Lowe - the voice of snooker - passed away too. There's a thing he said years ago in the days before colour telly became the norm...

..."And for those of you who are watching in black and white, the pink ball is the one tucked behind the blue". Brilliant. RIP Ted.
