Robertson was just 47-years-old and famously covered The Republic of Ireland’s international games.
His former Sky colleague David Tanner confirmed the sad news saying: “I’m heartbroken that Fraser Robertson, my oldest pal in journalism, has died.
“We met at Napier Uni as kids and grew up together at STV & Sky.
“He’s always been there, always wearing that big grin.”
Tanner added: “A fine journalist with an eye for a story, never happier than when offering help to teammates: generously sharing his time, vast knowledge and ideas.
“Fraz loved sport and TV, working in both gave him structure in life, especially after his comeback from major illness.
“We’ve lost a lovely man. I can’t believe he’s gone and I’m so terribly sad for his family.”
Meanwhile, former Ireland striker Clinton Morrison took to Twitter to lead tributes writing: “RIP Fraser Robertson such sad news.
“I will remember all the good chats and the laughs we had with Ireland for sky sports you was a good man you will be sorely missed.”
Newcastle football icon Shay Given added: “Sorry to hear the news of the passing of @SkySportsNews presenter Fraser Robertson.
“Did lots of interviews with him over the years (Great man) Way to young to pass, thoughts and prayers with his family and friends RIP.”
Ireland manager Mick McCarthy also opened up about the tragic news saying: “It’s very sad. I really feel for his family.
“He was a great lad, I used to laugh with him because he used to always end his reports with that ‘Sky Sports News’ line.
“I always repeated it to him any time I saw him.
“Its just very, very sad and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.”
