Football bids farewell to the voice of the classified results

James Alexander Gordon – the voice of the football results has died aged 78. Gordon had been diagnosed with throat cancer and duly stepped down from his position in 2013.

Football has a collective has together mourned the death of a legend whose legacy and voice lives on with all of us.

Current Sky Sports TV Presenter Jeff Stelling took to Twitter to write his message of thanks to “JAG” as he was known, for what he brought to football.

Blessed with the art of telling the scores, BBC Sport pulled out this video from the archives which gives us an insight as to how Gordon delivered the results.

Charlotte Green has since replaced Gordon on the classified results for the BBC radio and will continue the legacy that he left us all with.

Football will mourn the death of Gordon, but we will never forget that distinct voice that left us in joy or tears come ten to five.
