His wife said he could have had a fit, or it may have been his heart. Yet to find out.

He started taking fits after his accident on the quad bike didn't he?  Sad

ik Mayall's wife says the comedian "suffered an acute cardiac event" before his death at their home on Monday.

Barbara Robbins said it happened after the comic returned from a morning run.

Her comments follow the West London Coroner's Office saying the post-mortem examination had proved inconclusive and further tests were required.

A pioneer of the 1980s alternative comedy scene, Mayall starred in shows including The Young Ones and Bottom.

In a statement, Ms Robbins said: "We now know that our darling Rik suffered an 'acute cardiac event' at our home around midday on June 9th.

"He had just returned from his usual run and many people had seen him that morning."

She also thanked the public for their messages of support and the press "for their discretion at this time and for all the wonderful coverage that you have given Rik - it would have made him very happy".

So sad.   Sad

I hear of many people, famous and otherwise who drop dead after jogging. I think people push themselves too far. Forum Index -> Liverpool News & Chat
