Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and husband of England's Queen Elizabeth II for more than seven decades, has died, Buckingham Palace announced Friday. He was 99.
Throughout his life, Philip had his associations with sports — he and the queen apparently met on a tennis court.
He was a two-term president at the Lord's Marylebone Cricket Club — commonly referred to as "Lord's" and regarded as the worldwide "Home of Cricket" — and presented the Lord's Taverners ECB Trophy until his retirement from public life in 2017.
Philip also played a role in the opening ceremonies of the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia.
Organizations and individuals throughout the sports world have begun offering their respects to Philip online:
The English Premier League will hold a moment of silence before all matches Friday and this weekend.
Lord's Cricket Ground:
"We were honoured to welcome The Duke to The Championships, Wimbledon, on six occasions, most recently in 1977 during The Centenary Championships. His Royal Highness also graciously accepted the invitation to present the Gentlemen’s Singles Trophy on Centre Court to Lew Hoad in 1957 and Neale Fraser in 1960."
Tottenham hotspur manager Jose Mourinho:
"I would like to express my condolences to the royal family and to be very honest and say I have deep, deep, deep, the utmost respect for the royal family. I believe that is not just this country that it's going to be sharing these feelings because I am not English and I know that many like myself, we have the utmost respect, so I am sorry to stop your question with this."
The FA has ordered all flags at Wembley Stadium and St. George's Park at half-mast:
"We have sent our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and our president, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, following the passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh."
