Wales rugby great and BBC presenter Ray Gravell has died at the age of 56.
The former Wales and Lions centre was taken ill on Wednesday while on holiday in Spain. He is survived by wife Mari and daughters Gwennan and Manon.
Gravell won 23 caps for his country and made the 1980 Lions tour to South Africa, playing in all four Tests.
After finishing playing rugby, Gravell carved out a new career as a broadcaster and an actor in both the English and Welsh languages.
Gravell was part of the Llanelli side that famously beat New Zealand on 31 October 1972 during the All Blacks’ tour of Britain.
Three years later, on 18 January 1975, the fiercely patriotic Gravell made his Wales debut in a fine 25-10 win over France in Paris.
He remained a key member of the Wales teams of the late 1970s and early 1980s which dominated the Five Nations, winning two Grand Slams, four titles and four Triple Crowns.
