David Coleman (1926) is a British tv presenter, best known for his broadcasts of sport programs. During his career his old age caused him to start mispronouncing names , using clichés and making senseless comments. This made him an easy target for satire.
Portrayal on Spitting Image
In "Spitting Image" he was caricatured as a overenthusiastic and senile man who was often unaware of what was happening around him and misinterpreted the video footage that was shown to him.
He also appears in the Sketch, "A Question of Spit".
