    70 is no age.

    RIP Bob.

I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    A true great fast bowler. For many years the only one England had.

    Captain, assistant manager. True servant to English cricket.

    Rest in Peace.

    Very sad news. He was unplayable in that Headingly innings. I hope Bob Dylan is played at his funeral.

    Bob Willis and Botham beating Australia on their own at Headingly in the Ashes was one of the greatest English sporting achievements I've ever seen,he was a whole hearted full blooded fast bowler and a proper gent. RIP Bob.

    Great bowler and excellent pundit who always said it as he saw it. Great sense of humour too, although very well hidden, see his response to Joe Root.
    RIP

    It's all down to the media and the Cult of Celebrity.
    The graph is rising at an exponential rate.
    We'll all be suffering from PTSD as the number of celeb-deaths increases on a daily basis.
    Setting that aside, thanks for the memories Mr Willis.
    One of England cricket's finest.
