The poem pictured Collymore’s charismatic nature and character as it asked people to keep time.

“If you are asked to talk about me for five minutes, please do not go on for eight,” reads the poem.

The poem also showed Collymore’s wish to have his body taken at the crematorium rather than a traditional kind of burial.

“There is a strict timetable at the crematorium and nobody wants to be late,” read the poem.

Bob Collymore died on July 1, aged 61.
