John McCririck dies…What were the odds on that?


Horse racing expert, fancy arm waving, deerstalker-wearing man, John McCririck has died aged 79.

McCririck will be best remembered for having bizarre sideburns, which unusually, he had from birth.

McCririck had spare sideburns which he kept under his famous deerstalker hat, and was able to effortlessly slide them into position, if needed.

‘I was quite entertaining for a while,’ said McCririck this evening.

‘Although, a bit of a dinosaur, I think you’ll find,’ he added.
