As we bring our latest issue of the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine to you, we are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. 

Queen Elizabeth was a truly remarkable lady who dedicated her adult life to the service of others. A person of great personal integrity and character. A person who could unite so many people and be a shining beacon of light in our darkest times. She gave us leadership, hope, security, wisdom, grace, and a wonderful sense of humour. 

She gave 70 years' service to Crown and Commonwealth, and was unfailing in her commitment to her many roles. 

In the world of sport, she was a great advocate and lover of many different sports, and a patron of many sporting organizations around the world. She had a particular love of horse racing and had a deep knowledge of the sport. As a racehorse owner, she had great success and as a mother was proud to watch her daughter, Princess Anne, compete in the 1976 Montreal Olympics riding her mother's horse in the equestrian event.  

Queen Elizabeth attended many sporting events both in the UK and overseas throughout her life, including the Commonwealth games and the Olympic Games. She made a particularly memorable appearance at the 2012 Olympic Games ceremony in London following a filmed sequence with the actor Daniel Craig as James Bond, the quintessential British secret service agent, which perfectly highlighted her sense of humour.

She will be missed by millions of people around the World who are joined in mourning at her passing.  She will always be remembered as an inspiration to all. 

At this difficult time, it may give some comfort to reflect on Queen Elizabeth's own words from her Golden Jubilee message in June 2012 when she said - 

'"I believe that, young or old, we have as much to look forward to with confidence and hope as we have to look back on with pride." 

Queen Elizabeth II 1926 - 2022
