Former Great Britain basketball coach Kevin Cadle has died aged 62.

The American, who also coached England and Scotland, became the most successful coach in British basketball during a career in which he won 30 titles.

"We are shocked and saddened to hear that British basketball has lost a true legend in Kevin Cadle," read a post on social media from British Basketball. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends."

Another from NFL UK read: "We are shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Kevin Cadle, a great friend of NFL UK for so long. Our thoughts are with his loved ones."

Cadle was named coach of the year eight times between 1984 and 1997.

In addition to his positions in international basketball, which included that with Great Britain during the 1992 Olympic qualifiers, he coached London Towers, Glasgow, Kingston and Guildford.

During a similarly successful broadcasting career, he became established on Sky Sports as one of the most recognisable figures for both the NFL and NBA coverage.
