Tony Greig’s death: is it relevant whether he smoked?

Margot Foster writes: Re. Greig passes on (Tips and rumours, yesterday). I think it relevant to a news report to say he wasn’t a smoker if that’s the case. Otherwise the usual assumption is that he was at some stage in his life and that led to his lung cancer diagnosis. Most people I suspect assume the link so it is important to let people know that sometimes there isn’t one.
