Sydney football legend and former commentator Rex Mossop has died in a Sydney hospital at the age of 83.
The former rugby league and rugby union international forward had been admitted to hospital earlier this year with Alzheimer’s disease. He was surrounded by family and friends when he died.
Although he retired from the sport in the early 1960s, Mossop maintained a high profile as a television commentator and presenter for Sydney channels ATN7 and TEN10 in the 1970s and 1980s.
Mossop also presented The Club Show for ATN7 in the 1970s and was a regular panellist on the 1990s sports-comedy show Andrew Denton: Live And Sweaty for ABC.
