Field hockey player John Peake has died aged 97. Though he also dabbled in squash and tennis, it was in hockey where he proved most adept, particularly as a participant of the British team during the 1948 London Olympics. His team scored silver, losing in the final to India’s team, which featured past deadpooling legend Balbir Singh. He was later a torchbearer when the Olympics returned to London in 2012, and somehow outlived old rival Balbir. Peake was a unique for sporting outfit THE FINAL WHISTLE.
