Sid Wadddell - Cancer, in his own words

Sid, who also penned 11 books and wrote BBC children's programmes Jossy's Giants and Sloggers, allowed the Sky Sports cameras into his home earlier this summer to reflect on his life.

The Geordie spoke about his childhood in the North East, his time studying at Cambridge University, his time behind the microphone commentating on some of the greatest dartist of all time, and his fight against bowel cancer.
