Yes, I had a tear in the eye when I heard the news on 'Today'. The guy is incredible, the strength in his voice.
I have to say, though, that the BBC has missed a huge trick by not changing the image of Alan which sits on mine and - must be - thousands of other blogs and websites.

But - 17 hours after the news broke - they haven't changed the image.
