His death's a trending topic in the UK plus he's getting RIP tweets from guys like Shane Warne and Lance Armstrong. He'll get a Daily Mail Online obit within two hours.

If he does, 'ary Kiri and The Living End go joint top of the DDP.
I feel like Richard Dunn clambering into the ring to face Ali.

why, you little...

A "hit" is one that has a mention of their death in a British national newspaper\website. It doesn't have to be a normal obituary write up. Reuters and of course the BBC are also acceptable. There's a precis of this on the List of the Lost page on the DDP website.

Famed ALS researcher and now victim Dr. Richard Olney has been dead since January 27th.

Teams "George Lass and the Gravelings" and "Toasted Brown Bread" both picked him, and will probably recieve zero points.
