Robbie Savage tweets his heartache as 'idol' dad dies

Taking the Twitter route to express his feelings of despair and devastation at the death of his ‘idol’ dad, Robbie Savage - former footballer from Wales - paid tribute to the “brave” factory manager, saying that his father was his hero and his best friend.

The star footballer’s father - Colin Savage, 64 – passed away at Wrexham's Maelor Hospital where he was undergoing treatment for a rare form of Alzheimer's disease called Pick’s disease.

Saying that his father was a “great man” and that the family was always by his side while he battled with the disease “for too long,” Robbie said that his father fought the disease bravely and did not complain even once.

In his Twitter post, 37-year-old Robbie – the ex-Leicester, Blackburn and Birmingham midfielder - expressed his heartache at the demise of his father, and acknowledging the extremely important role he played in shaping his life, said: “Without my dad who is my hero I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I did!”

Further adding he loved hid dad “so so much” and was going to miss him immensely, Robbie put in a request for others to express their love to their fathers, saying: “If you’re with your dad now give him a kiss and tell him you love him, because they won’t be here forever.”
