The cricket legend Shane Warne, who learned the art of spin bowling under Terry Jenner, has described his mentor as an amazing man who was full of knowledge he wanted to share.

Jenner, who played nine Tests as a leg-spinner in the 1970s, died on Wednesday aged 66 after a long illness.

His greatest legacy to the sport was as the coach of the extravagantly-talented Warne, who tweeted his grief on learning of Jenner's death, saying he's writing a piece on "TJ" which he will post on his website on Thursday.
