▶ ESPN broadcaste­r succumbs to cancer at age 49

-

Stuart Scott was in his element, working a Monday Night Football game, when he was forced to leave for an appendix operation. Doctors discovered a tumour during surgery and Scott was diagnosed with cancer. But he made a point of continuing to live his life — at work and outside of it. “You beat cancer by how you live,” he would later say. “So live. Live. Fight like hell.” That fight ended Sunday when Scott, the longtime SportsCent­er anchor and ESPN personalit­y known for his enthusiasm and ubiquity, died at age 49. Scott remained dedicated to his craft even as he suffered through chemothera­py, radiation and surgery. In July, Scott accepted the Jimmy V Perseveran­ce Award at the ESPYs.
