Pioneer. Legend. Icon.

Lou Richards, a Collingwood premiership captain and arguably the first truly transcendent superstar of Australia’s game, has passed at the age of 94.

Collingwood President Eddie McGuire sent his heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Richards.

“No man has done more for our game than Lou Richards. He was a quintessential Collingwood man who spoke to the entire football world,” McGuire said.

“My thoughts, and all of Collingwood’s, are with the Richards clan.”

The club would like to extend its deepest sympathies to the Richards family.

Vale, Lou.
