The election news has been overshadowed a bit by the announcement of the death of former Prime Minister Bob Hawke.

Bob was one of the most popular PMs ever and was famous for all sorts of important things.

But he was also famous for his drinking skills. He attended Oxford University where he was a Rhodes Scholar.
While at Oxford he became the world record holder for the fastest drinking of a yard of beer, when he downed a sconce pot in eleven seconds as part of a traditional Oxford college penalty.

He is remembered at the Turf Tavern in Oxford
