Broadcasting legend James Alexander Gordon dies aged 78

The man whose voice was synonymous with the classified football results on BBC radio has died aged 78.

After joining the BBC as an announcer and newsreader in 1972 Gordon, who contracted polio as a child and had to wear leg supports until his late teens, began reading the results in 1974.

Popularly known as by his initials JAG, he became one of the most recognisable voices on radio, reading the results first on Radio 2 and then Radio 5 Live.

After having his larynx removed to treat throat cancer last July, he was replaced by Charlotte Green.

Gordon was described as a "true gentleman" by Richard Burgess, head of BBC sports news and BBC radio sport.

Tributes quickly poured in following the announcement of his death, led by Match of the Day host and former England striker Gary Lineker.

England goalkeeper Ben Foster also paid his respects.

Pundit Robbie Savage also paid tribute.
