He once lived at Littlewick Green, Maidenhead which was not far from me. A story did the rounds at the time (probably apocryphal) that a guy was driving past his house when Freddie waved him down and asked could he give him a push. Freddie went back into his garden and the guy got out of his car and followed him. When he got into the garden, he saw Freddie sitting on a swing. RIP.

Doris Day aged 97. I always remember when I was stationed in Singapore (1950's) Que Sera Sera was top of the hit parade, whenever I hear it, if I close my eyes, I am back in Singapore. It is so weird that I feel I am actually there. Just googled it up on Youtube, quite emotional. RIP.

Former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke died aged 89, he was a member of the Labour Party and held the record for that party for the longest term between 1983 to 1991. Brought in Superannuation and Medicare which are still alive today. Loved his cricket and a beer and had his own brewing company.

Famous for saying after Australia beat the USA in the America's cup in 83 that if any boss had a problem with their workers having the day off to celebrate they were "a bum" but in the next line said if they went to work the day after (the day off) they would have to work double their work load.

RIP Bob!

Leeds-born former rugby league coach Maurice Bamford has died, aged 83.

Bamford was one of the most well-known and respected figures in the game and achieved the remarkable feat of coaching its two biggest clubs, Leeds and Wigan as well as the Great Britain Test side.

As a player he had spells with Hull - where he did not break into the first team - and Dewsbury before beginning his coaching career in the amateur game.

In the early 1970s he was appointed assistant at Dewsbury and he then went on to coach a host of professional sides including Leeds from November, 1983 to February, 1985 and then again from December, 1986 to April, 1988.

His first spell at Headingley began with an 18-game unbeaten run which included victory in the 1984 JP Special Trophy final.

After retiring from coaching Bamford began a new career as an author and rugby league match reporter.

His daughter Jane confirmed he died in hospital on Wednesday night.

He had been ill for some time.
