My goodness. This is so sad and a really shock. One of the defining sporting sights has to be him charging in during ‘81 Ashes, hair everywhere, tearing through Aussies. A fine, if not always optimistic, broadcaster too. Very sad loss..

Unusual in the world of clichéd sports punditry, Bob Willis was unflinching in his honest analysis. A great fast bowler too. My vision of him charging in at Headingley in 1981 to rip through the Aussies is still clear now. Top bloke in my book. #RIP.

The irony of Aussies potentially fleeing their country as climate refugees, not getting in to other countries who have adopted Australian point based systems..

Third match, second innings, England down and almost out, 500/1 at the bookies, Willis bowles Aussies out 8/43 in one of the greatest and improbable wins ever; and does not get MOTM..

Aussies probably: Mate! where were you when we needed to hide that sandpaper damnit!.

I remember in the pre mobile/internet days of 1981 how TV shop windows were surrounded by people watching #BobWillis demolish the Aussies.

So sad to hear the news about Bob Willis. Both as a player and a pundit he was always brilliant. Watching him destroy the Aussies will never get boring. #ripbobwillis 😢.

Genuinely shocked to hear the terribly sad news about Bob Willis. I know that Botham gets all the plaudits for Headingley ‘81, but Bob Willis ran through the Aussies like a man possessed. RIP Bob.

The death of Bob Willis before he was even old is very sad. I’ll never forget watching him destroy the Aussies in the Headingley test of 1981. What a cricketer..

One of my first memories as a kid watching cricket on TV was of Bob Willis steaming in to bowl at the What a bowler he was. I always wanted to bowl like him! Such a shame he’s passed away. Cheers, Bob. #BobWillis.

Ayer decenas de bomberos provenientes de varias provincias canadienses como Ontario, Alberta o la Columbia Británica comenzaron a viajar hasta NSW para ayudar a sus compas aussies. Estas van a ser sus vacaciones navideñas.

Last RT. Thanks Bob for giving me one of the greatest sporting memories of my 8-43 at Headingley against the Aussies. And coming out to bat v PAK in 1982, getting almost to the middle and he hadn’t brought his bat! #ripbobwillis.

Such sad news. Watching him charge in at the Aussies back in 1981 remains one of my greatest cricketing highlights. Condolences to his family and friends..

1981. 3rd Ashes test. Headingly, Ian Botham heroics & Bob Willis bowling out the Aussies with 8 for 43 The greatest spell of fast bowling I have seen to win the match..

This is such sad news. One of the great fast bowlers and his 8-43 against the Aussies one of the great bowling performances. #ripbobwillis and thanks for all the wickets Bob Willis: Former England cricket captain dies aged 70 -.

@SkySportsNews I’m sure like many who still remember the famous Ashes headingley test match of 1981 and the way the Aussies were blown away with Bobs incredible bowling and Bobs views and comments on cricket were always worth listening to a true legend of the game who will be so sadly missed..

Australia is learning hard lessons about the effects of decades of affording the Chinese an open door Down Under. Now, as the Aussies have begun to take corrective actions, they also getting a taste of Chinese retribution..
