David Cameron has led tributes to record-breaking athlete and Tory former minister Sir Christopher Chataway, describing him as "one of a kind" and a "great Briton".
Sir Christopher, who acted as a pacemaker in Oxford to help Sir Roger Bannister become the first man to break the four-minute mile barrier in 1954, died aged 82.
He died at around 7am today at St John's Hospice in north west London having suffered from cancer for two and a half years, his son Mark Chataway said.
Educated in Dorset and Oxford, Chataway was one of the pacemakers who made Bannister's achievement possible, in May 1954. He gained recognition for himself later that year, though, when he broke the world 5000 metre record. He was the first winner of the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year
Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust have given this statement in response to 10-year-old Louisa Ravouvou receiving a £5 million settlement.
– Spokesperson from the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust
Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust confirms that terms of settlement were approved by the High Court in London today.
The Trust offered its sincere apologies for the identified failures in care leading up to Ms Ravouvou’s delivery in 2003.
The Trust has made an admission of liability and has agreed a settlement with Ms Ravouvou and her family which we hope will provide assistance for her future and assist Ms Ravouvou in reaching her full potential.
A 10-year-old girl has been given a £5 million settlement after two hospitals in Oxford and Wiltshire made errors, leaving her severely disabled.
Louisa Ravouvou suffered serious injuries because hospital staff failed to respond to a bleed on the brain while she was in the womb.
They later failed to give her a blood transfusion which she needed shortly after she was born.
The Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust, now the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, and the Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust jointly admitted in May 2012 that breaches of their duty of care caused Louisa's disabilities.
The High Court announced the £5 million pay out today, which will provide her care for the rest of her life.
Sue Jarvis, a partner at Blake Lapthorn who leads the firm's Clinical Negligence team in Oxford and acted for Louisa said, "Today's settlement means that Louisa will receive a package to provide care for the rest of her life.
"Louisa has a much reduced life expectancy but the award will ensure that during her shortened life she receives the care and aids and appliances which she needs."
