Although he’s not exactly around to fact check, Winston Churchill’s last words (shown above) were allegedly: ‘I’m bored with it all’, before slipping into a coma and dying nine days later.
Troubled footballer George Best apparently said: ‘Don’t die like I did.’
Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is believed to have said: ‘It’s better to burn out than fade away.’
