Sky Sports reporter Fraser Robertson has died at the age of 47.
Fraser passed away from natural causes, leaving behind a wife and young daughter.
Former Sky Sports football presenter David Tanner said: “I’m heartbroken that Fraser Robertson, my oldest pal in journalism, has died.
“We met at Napier Uni as kids and grew up together at STV & Sky. He’s always been there, always wearing that big grin.
“A fine journalist with an eye for a story, never happier than when offering help to teammates: generously sharing his time, vast knowledge and ideas.
“Fraz loved sport and TV, working in both gave him structure in life, especially after his comeback from major illness.
“We’ve lost a lovely man. I can’t believe he’s gone and I’m so terribly sad for his family.”
Adam Leventhal, who currently presents on Sky Sports News, added: “So sad to have lost Fraser Robertson so young.
“A journalist always committed to the cause, digging and eager to get the stories. Full of energy off camera too and on the golf course. Thoughts with his family at a terrible time.”
Fraser mainly covered the Republic of Ireland’s international matches for the sports channel.
