THE Irish Hospice Foundation has urged people to be compassionate to those going through bereavement after Roy Keane mocked Jonathan Walters for "crying" when talking about several family tragedies.

In May, Walters opened up about the "triple-whammy" that befell his family in a highly emotional interview on 'The Late Late Show'.

Roy Keane said this week: "He talks a good game. He goes on the TV about how he was harshly treated by me... He's crying on the TV about his family situation."

But a spokesperson for the hospice said: "It's important for some people to talk about their grief and we can all learn from that."
