Cliff Richard, the beloved singer, is in excruciating pain.

Sir Cliff Richard, 82, expressed his condolences on Facebook following the death of Bill Latham, a friend and former manager with whom he had shared a home for 30 years.

The musician credited his late religious studies instructor with helping him discover the “spiritual pathway” that transformed his life.

He shared an old photo of the couple with American evangelist Billy Graham.

“This time, someone I thought I’d known forever has died and is now living a better life.”
