The outpouring of tributes is continueing unabated and it is wonderful to read and see how highly Greigie as he was affectionately called by the Ozzies, was regarded both here and abroad.
As I've said there are many tributes, this is one made by James Packer, the son of the late Kerry Packer gives an insight into the man....
"Tony stood shoulder to shoulder with my father at times when it was not always fashionable.
Apart from his considerable talents as a cricketer and then a commentator, (Greig) played an absolutely pivotal role in the success of World Series Cricket, which changed the game forever for the better," Packer said.
