Mr Natale's family said: 'We are deeply saddened by the loss of Damien, our loving husband, doting father, cherished granddad, adored son and loyal friend.

'He was the one man you could always rely on and he touched the hearts of everyone he met.

'He had a passion for sports particularly football and cycling and was always the biggest team player.

'Him and Andy were selfless, organising cycling Sportives for charity in their spare time. Our idol. Our hero. Our hearts are broken.'

Mr Coles' family added: 'Great guys leave gaping holes and no words come close to expressing the devastation this tragedy brings to all Andy's family and friends.

'Andy was always smiling, had time for everyone as well as a cheeky one, every now and then.

'His energy and warmth helped him give so much and ensured the time we all spent with him was filled with love and laughter. He will be missed so very much by all who knew and loved him. A class act.'

The friends started the Haddenham Hillbillies cycling club in 2012 and launched local riding events that raised 'hundreds of thousands of pounds' for charity.
