He was diagnosed with cancer a year or two ago.  Although not immediately fatal, definitely one to keep an eye on, given his age.

Was he in fine spirits or where they in him?

2. Label Winston Churchill, the guy without whom Europe would have become 100% Nazi, "outdated and imperialist" etc., and smirk as people get arrested for citing his views of Islam.

(3. Lurkingly and creepily use internet powers that were granted to you in more peaceful care-free times to arbitrarily censor and threaten people with opinions you don't like, much like a middle-of-the-night raid on opposition by 1930s Nazi street thugs)

He has no health issues atm, beat his cancer

Fact he attends 15+ races a year at his age shows he is not a serious candidate for inclusion

Can see him reaching 100

Far too early, the cancer was so insignificant it didn't even involve any invasive treatment and was effectively in remission 4 weeks after diagnosis. He has worked regularly this year and looks and sounds as well as ever. His lifestyle is impeccable too. Very hard to pick someone who could make 100 years old, but if I was pushed I would say he is a possibility. I'd fully expect him to live absolute minimum three years more.

 

Amazing that Liz Dawn didn't make the list considering she can't walk five steps without being breathless due to advanced emphysema. Cruyff has lung cancer another high risk one, and Everton chairman Kenright's cancer appears to be the worst kept secret in football. The Deathlist works in mysterious ways!

Certainly. Then again: The Deathlist regularly scores hits with ridiculous candidates.

Good inclusion from the "new blood" perspective. I have him in a team because I thought he might be one to die simply by age.

His mother appeared on Murray's This is Your Life at the age of 100, so it wouldn't surprise me if her son lived a few more years. I hope so.

I quite liked him on 'Catchphrase' in the mid '90s. Whatever happened to 'Mr Chips' ?

Going to be part of Channel 4's new FI team doing interviews with figures from F1. Therefore he must be in decent physical and mental shape to do this. Can't be many 92 year olds still working in TV.

Bruce Forsyth and Nicholas Parsons come to mind...

Cruyff of course was last seen in public about three weeks before his death looking the picture of health at F1 testing in Barcelona. His health must then have taken a Cruyff turn for the worse.
