Family has now confirmed the death of Dr Monty Brink, who collapsed during the cycle tour - the most lovely, kind and compassionate gynae/OB who delivered both my kids. The world is a poorer place without him. Sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.— Pippa Hudson (@pjchudson) March 11, 2019
