Tributes continue to flow after the death of Andrew Symonds
The man who received the final text from a cricket legend has paid tribute.
Andrew Symonds passed away over the weekend after a single-vehicle car crash just outside his hometown of Townsville.
Just hours before the tragic accident the 46-year-old sent a text to Fox Sports Executive Director Steve Crawley.
The message had a screenshot of a news story about NFL star Tom Brady’s new $540 million dollar broadcast deal with Fox in the US.
And the text read “Crawls … we need to talk.”
Mr Crawley told Ben Fordham Symonds had a great sense of humour.
“He was different, he was free.”
