Arizona sports teams, athletes react to death of Sen. John McCain

USA senator John McCain, a celebrated war hero known for reaching across the aisle in an increasingly divided America, died today following a battle with brain cancer.

In May, after a White House aide mocked John McCain, who had cancer, by reportedly saying, "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyways", Meghan McCain snapped back.

"I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning".

McCain, 81, was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour, called a glioblastoma, in July previous year, and made a decision to stop treatment on Friday.

"I love my husband with all of my heart". "I am so lucky to have lived the adventure of loving this incredible man for 38 years".

Pogba too inconsistent and not a leader, claims Scholes
Pogba wasn't the worst man on the pitch but with the captain's armband on he couldn't help inspire his side to a win. "Myself first, should have done much better, less mistakes, control more the game", said the World Cup victor .

"All that I am is thanks to him. Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his example, his expectations, and his love".

McCain had not been on the Senate floor in months, remaining at his Arizona home for treatment of glioblastoma - the same form of brain cancer that took the life of another Senate giant, Democrat Ted Kennedy, in 2009.

"My father's passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, my mother, for my brothers, and for my sisters".

Meghan McCain, a co-host of "The View", was fiercely loyal to her father. "We know that his flame lives on, in each of us". At John's best, he showed us what that means. Although he and I sometimes disagreed, I was deeply privileged to serve with him and proud to call him a friend.

In a Sports Illustrated piece he wrote previous year, Fitzgerald wrote that he would tell his sons "Senator John McCain will be revered and respected for as long as the United States of America has a place in this world, and his legacy will outlive us all". The end, however inevitable, was hard for those who knew him.
