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.
