Veteran sports journalist and ace broadcaster, Olayinka Babasanya Craig, has passed on in a United States of America hospital.

Craig died this morning, at Mayo Clinic, in Minnesota, USA, after a protracted battle with cancer. His lymphatic system was particularly implicated in the complication that eventually killed the very jovial broadcaster. The late Craig is survived by a wife and three children.

The news of his death was announced by his son, Dr. David Olamide Craig, who said his father passed on early today in the United States of America after he succumbed to cancer.

“It is with a heavy heart, and joy at God’s perfect will that I announce the passing on to Glory of my father, teacher, mentor and friend, Mr. Olayinka Babasanya Craig, who went to be with the Lord at 6.00am this morning at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota,” David said in a statement posted on the family’s website.

A pioneer radio and television broadcaster, sports journalist extraordinaire and a national icon, Yinka Craig, according to his son was his usual jovial self until his death.

“My dad, Yinka Craig, though gave up the battle against cancer, he was still his jovial and lively self but he had to give up the fight at the end.”
