    Les Murray, Australian football broadcasting legend and SBS presenter, dies aged 71

    The Daily Telegraph

    THE world of Australian football is in mourning after the news that broadcasting legend and SBS presenter Les Murray has died aged 71.

    The country’s most prominent presence on TV screens covering the sport, he was a passionate advocate for the game and a much loved figure both in sport and the media.

    Murray, born in Hungary with his family emigrating to Australia in 1957, began working in journalism in 1971, spending a time with Network Ten before joining SBS at its foundation in 1980. It was there that he made his name, his face and voice now synonymous with football in this country, his knowledge and humour a feature of football fans’ experience of the sport.

    He is survived by two adult daughters, Tania and Natalie.

    Murray was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia in 2006 and was also a member of Football Federation Australia’s Hall of Fame.

    Having stepped back from a full time role following the 2014 World Cup finals, he continued to play an active role with SBS on a part-time basis, as recently as earlier this month penning a column on the broadcaster’s website to weigh in on the current impasse between the FFA and A-League clubs.

    He could be an annoying sod on occasion , but one could never doubt his love for the game and passion for the game in this country.

    RIP László
