The Eurovision Song Contest has described Sir Terry Wogan as "the most remarkable" commentator in the show's history.

Sir Terry was known for his dry, withering comments during the programmes, and his regular criticisms of other European nations for political voting patterns.

Sir Terry first commentated on the show in 1971, and did so for the final time in 2008 - being replaced by fellow Irishman Graham Norton.
