Vale: Evel Knievel

Motorcyle daredevil Evel Knievel has died, aged 69.

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.
