RIP Mick McManus, a legend of professional wrestling

I’m sure you’ve seen all the obituaries and tributes by now, but in case you hadn’t, the legendary Mick McManus died today, at the age of 93. (Internet sources have quibbled over his exact year of birth, but 1920 seems to be the general consensus.)

One of the great joys of digital television has been the access to all the World of Sport episodes, and thus I include here a clip of McManus taking on Johnny Saint from 1976.
