17:32 HOURS AND
Alex Trebek, an old leopard master, died after his fight with pancreatic cancer.
Trebek, who was 80 years old, has spent 37 years starring and nearly 8,000 episodes and has won 35 Emmy and Peabody awards.
Born in Sudbury, Ontario, he was also a sports fan. In October, Mr. Trebek even announced the first selection round of the Ottawa Senators for this year’s NHL project. Sport has also become a great danger! Last year, sports betting provider James Holzhauer earned more than $2.4 million for 33 games.
Moreover, the popularity of the program and the sports details that were part of it from time to time made it a favourite among athletes and sports enthusiasts. Here are some of the reactions to Trebek’s death:

I’ve never met Alex Trebek. Looks like a lot of time has passed. Maybe not my best friend, but a friend I loved very much. #ripalextrebeck pic.twitter.com/rqyJZ9pasA
