After 10 years of whipping up crowds at the elaborate daily ceremony to close Pakistan and India's land border crossing at Wagah, the flag-waving star of the Pakistani side of the show has died.
For a decade Mehr Din, known as Uncle Pakistan, led his compatriots in cheering on their men. He died on Sunday at the age of 90.
The Express Tribune hailed him as "chief patriot" and "custodian of national pride", while a border official said he was the "motivating force" at the ceremonies.
