Vale: Evel Knievel
The American stuntman had been in ailing health for some time.
Knievel most-famously attempted to leap the Snake River Canyon in 1974, but despite failing, generated enormous publicity. He even spawned a movie, The Evel Knievel Movie.
In TV he appeared as a guest on shows like The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, The Sonny and Cher Show and played himself on The Bionic Woman series.
