Sporting legend Roger Bannister has died at the age of 88.

Sir Roger, who was born in Harrow, had been suffering from Parkinson's Disease since 2011.

He attended Vaughan Primary School in Harrow and went on to complete his studies at the University of Oxford.

He was the first man to run a mile in under four minutes. He also won gold over the same disance at the 1954 Commonwealth Games.

A statement on behalf of his family said: "Sir Roger Bannister, died peacefully in Oxford on March 3, 2018, aged 88.

"He was surrounded by his family who were as loved by him as he was loved by them.

"He banked his treasure in the heart of his friends."

He viewed running as something to be done in his spare time, away from the demands of his job as a leading neurologist.
