Obit lead du jour

I'm afraid Ian Carmichael's subhead cannot compare with that of Ali Hassani:

Ali Hassani, who died on January 16 aged 82, became a circus tumbler after being snatched from a Moroccan marketplace aged only seven; during his decades in the Big Top he once calmly saved a boy from an escaped bear.

No amount of spiffing claret can beat that.
