RIP Seve - one of only a small handful of sporting superstars that I can happily say it was nothing less than a privilege to watch.

The fact that he is gone, and he is the same age as me, is rather sobering.

"Golfer Justin Rose apologised profusely after mistakenly tweeting bout the death of Spanish golf legend Seve Ballesteros, who is gravely ill. ..." 1hr ago....

Seve Ballesteros condition is deteriorating, say family

BBC reports his condition as worsening, rather than reporting his demise?

What?? It's on every TV channel, and they are quoting a 'family statement'. Even Wikipedia has him shown as dead.

Wow it appears there was some confusion, up until 1/2hr ago the link NB posted stated he was gravely ill but that his family said he continued to fight. That same link now reports his death.... All a bit irrelevant now anyway....

It a sad loss, he was an amazingly naturally gifted talent, a true legend of the game and a great ambassador for sport in general. Such a shame that he died so young....

From Lionheart:

Farewell to probably the greatest golfer Europe has ever produced and a fine gentleman too. Not only the same age as Deano, but also myself...and a certain Bin Ladin person.
