Rugby league great Arthur Beetson has died this morning at the age of 66 after suffering a heart attack.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said officers were called to a home at Paradise Point on the Gold Coast where a man had suffered a heart attack and fallen from a bicycle shortly before 9am.
Paramedics performed CPR but he was unable to be resuscitated and was transported to Gold Coast Hospital.

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh told State Parliament about the death just after 10am and offered her sympathies.
“This morning Queensland has lost one of its legends and one of its favourite sons,” she said.
“He loved his league, he loved his Queensland and his loss will be felt by many.”

Obviously didn't watch too much of him playing but I knew how much of an affect he had to the Indigenous he was as a role model and off field work with them he may of done and also as a champion player, first indigenous captain for Australia and was an absolute legend for the Maroons also..

RIP Big Fella.
