Eddie Butler, the legendary rugby commentator and former international known as the ‘Voice of Wales’, has died aged 65.
The channel has been a regular part of the BBC’s rugby internationals coverage and partnered with former England player Brian Moore and former Welsh fly-half Jonathan Davies.
Butler was taking part in a charity hike for Prostate Cymru in Peru when he died in his sleep, according to a statement from the organization where he was an ambassador.
Before taking the mic, Butler was capped 16 times by Wales between 1980 and 1984 and captained the side six times.
