Blair’s tribute to ‘voice of rugby’ Robertson

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair pays tribute to his former English teacher and legendary BBC rugby union correspondent Ian Robertson.

Robertson will retire after his final commentary on Saturday when England take on Australia, drawing to a close a 47-year-career covering the sport.

Blair says Robertson’s “iconic” voice will be missed, and being taught how to “sell a dummy” proved very useful in his political career.
