Renowned Iranian sports commentator Oskoui succumbs to disease

Prominent Iranian sports commentator Massoud Oskoui, dubbed the ‘eternal voice of radio’, died on Wednesday at the age of 85.

Oskoui was receiving treatment for cancer and was hospitalized in late March for pelvis and leg fractures in the capital Tehran.

He was a veteran media personality, a trademark sports commentator, and radio and television host, whose career spanned nearly 6 decades.

Besides his special tone, Oskoui was known as the trailblazer for other commentators in Iran in several fields including tennis, rally, equestrianism, and skiing.
