Percy Sonn's funeral took place in Cape Town on Saturday, six days after the ICC president died from complications following colon surgery.

Leading members of world cricket, including South African captain Graeme Smith, government figures and judiciary attended the service at St George's Cathedral.

"It is amazing that Percy, the boy from Bellville Cricket Club, became the boss of world cricket," said ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed.

Pall bearers into the cathedral included Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Peter Chingoka and Gerald Majola, Cricket South Africa's CEO.
