British motor racing legend Sir Sterling Moss has died at the age of 90 after a long illness. Regarded as one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers, Moss retired from public life in January 2018 due to ill health.
Moss suffered from chest infection while on a holiday in Singapore and was admitted to the hospital for 134 days.
Although he did not win a Formula 1 title, the sportsman enjoyed success in many racing formats.
Tributes have poured in from around the world. Mercedes, Moss’s former team, eulogized him saying it had lost not only a true icon and a legend, but a gentleman.
