It has been widely reported that ex-boxer Gary Mason was killed in a road collision in Wallington. He was cycling, and the driver involved has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving.
I do not follow boxing - I only vaguely remember Gary Mason, although reports indicate that he would have been one of the heavyweight greats if it hadn't been for injury.
What is amazing is that all the comments on all the sites point to a true gentleman who was thoughtful and kind, and also helped others in the community.
It is a very sad way to start 2011. My condolences are with his family.
