According to a tweet from the specialist who saw him told the media: “Michael you’ve got cancer, a bad one, of the sort that are not curable”, he added: “I don’t remember the rest of what he told me because I was thinking I was in the middle of a nightmare.
“They said I had a melanoma. Obviously melanoma normally is not in the armpit, it’’s in the skin.
“The metastasis had travelled and it showed itself up in my armpit.
“For a couple of days I didn’t really know what day it was. I thought it was a bad dream and in any case I thought it was minor and I would go to the hospital the following day and I’d be told, ‘We’ve made a mistake Michael’.
“One day, while I was having a beer, I told myself that science had spoken and I had a bad advanced cancer and the cancer had dictated a series of circumstances.

De niño, lo conoci gracias a que era la voz del pc futbol. No sabia ni quien era, pero solo con su particular acento de voz ya me caia bien.Luego sus informes me acabaron de conquistar.

La muerte de Michael Robinson es un antes y un después en las retransmisiones del Plus. Ya nada será igual.
Conozco a poca gente (por no decir nadie) al que le cayese mal. Eso es casi lo mejor que se puede decir de uno cuando deja este mundo.
Descanse en paz.
