The son of athlete Sir Christopher Chataway, who died today aged 82, said his father continued running late in life and clocked up a "very respectable" time in the Great North Run three years ago.
He kept running almost until the end of his life. He ran with a couple of my brothers in the Great North Run about three years ago now.
And then doing it in a very respectable time.
Mr Chataway said he believed Sir Christopher would like to be remembered as "a wonderful father, a husband, a grandfather".
"Those probably mattered more than any of the sporting or political things," he said. Sir Christopher was also a Conservative politician and broadcaster.
