ÅMOT (Dagbladet): This year too, there were strong reactions to the fact that Johan Gagstad did not receive an honorary award at the sports gala.
In this regard, many, including Kagestad's own fan club, wanted to pay tribute to the 80-year-old in a torchlight procession.
The protagonist himself was in a wheelchair.
– My father doesn't talk much. But he gets it all, his son Mats Kagestad tells the audience.
– I would like to thank you all for using your time on Saturday afternoon to bring so much joy and warmth to my father.
Dagbladet was there and saw moving scenes outside the Modumheimen nursing home. It was there that Kagestad was admired.
– We have no words for what to say to this. We think it's absolutely fantastic. Many thanks to everyone, says Mads Kaggestad.
In 2020, diabetes led to the collapse of Kagestat's kidneys, which led to inflammation in his internal organs.
The 80-year-old has less than ten percent kidney function, his son Mats Kagestt previously told Talkbladet.
As TV 2's cycling commentator for almost twenty years, Kaggestad became one of the biggest and most popular profiles in Idrett-Norway.
