    That's rough to hear. One of those to whom the word legend genuinely applies to.

    RIP Doddie.

    He has thrown a decent punch against MND that will hopefully have an impact through his fundraising and awareness campaigns

    Of all the ways to go this is easily one of the worst, its strips your senses your dignity and abilities methodically and unmercifully, leaves you reliant on care and kindness that can never be repaid.

    If ever there was a convincing argument for legislating for assisted dying its witnessing the suffering of a MND patient.

    RIP doddie.

    cant believe he was so young.

    "mistaken identity" was one of the funniest retorts ever

    It's only a few weeks since he and his family brought out the match ball in Murrayfield and now he's gone. Terrible illness to have to suffer through.
