Tributes to voice of cycling Paul Sherwen
Somewhere in cycling heaven, the “heads of state are all present and correct” to receive Paul Sherwen. A loss for his wife and children, many friends, the global community, and the cycling world. I don’t know what it is like to watch the Tour de France on TV without him. He will be dearly missed. Jeff Overstreet
Very sad news. Spent most of my youth and adult years listening to Paul and Phil Liggett commentating on the Tour. Barry Holderness
I grew up listening to Phil and Paul commentating on the Tour. One of the many reasons cycling is so dear to me. Rest easy mate, the world has lost another good ’un. Dan Owen
Paul was my favourite announcer, always so knowledgeable about the French countryside and terrific colour commentary. I’ve learned so much about the sport and France from him. Suzanna Teran
Such a huge loss. A great commentator and a great man. Loved his work on the Tour de France. Had great chemistry with Phil and Bobke [Bob Roll]. Won’t be the same without him.
