Sports presenter Tony Gubba, who was known to millions of viewers as the voice of Dancing On Ice, has died at the age of 69.

His death, after a short illness, was announced by his family, just hours after the final of the ITV celebrity ice dancing contest.

Gubba spent much of his TV career working for the BBC, as a commentator and presenter for Saturday sports show Grandstand as well as the midweek sports show Sportsnight and he also regularly worked on Match of the Day.

Dancing On Ice presenter Philip Schofield paid tribute to Gubba.

"We were all aware how poorly he was but this is very sudden and is a dreadful to everyone who knew and loved him," he said.

"A genuinely delightful, kind, dedicated and talented man."
