Robbie Savage: 'I can't believe Gary Speed has gone'

Former Wales midfielder Robbie Savage talks to BBC Radio Wales about being voted off Strictly Come Dancing and the words of encouragement he received from the father of his friend Gary Speed, the Wales football manager who died suddenly a week earlier.

Savage dedicated his dance to Speed's memory, performing a quickstep to the theme music from the film Reservoir dogs with his partner Ola Jordan.

He described preparations for the weekend TV show in the aftermath of Speed's death as a "hard, hard week" and admitted he broke down after speaking with Speed's father.
