In the news: Dies during Cricket World Cup

The death of Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer during the World Cup in the West Indies overshadowed the event.

There's never been a sports story quite like this. At times the story seemed straight out of a Hollywood movie after initial reports indicated that the Englishman had been murdered.

An inquest has returned an open verdict, although it is generally believed the former South African coach died of natural causes.
