The Reverend Professor William "Owen" Chadwick – who was the oldest living British & Irish Lion – has died at the age of 99.

Chadwick joined an informal Lions team which toured Argentina in 1936, winning all their ten games, including a 23-0 victory against the Argentinian national side, in which Chadwick played in his favoured position as hooker.

Educated at Tonbridge School, Chadwick won three Rugby Blues at Cambridge University and also played for the Barbarians.

He then went on to become one of the greatest religious historians of his age, noted for the wide variety of subjects he treated. ]
