I am overwhelmed by their integrity and genuine charm - some of the recent lot see their fame as a massive introduction into the 'cash cow' - I know other sports people do the same - just thought Olympians were more like 'your average' bloke on the street.

Hopefully only the London 2012 "Golden Generation" have succumbed to it, not their successors.

I wanted to play football for Brentford! However, I had challenges to overcome. Although I spoke no English, and I was small and skinny, they found a place for me. With my blinding pace I was made right back for the Brentford youth team.

I guess I misinterpretted that.

Where is that from?! Even his PE teacher at Feltham school said he wasn't a footballer! I think someone's written that with a Brentord bias! He's Arsenal, and he's said so in many tv interviews. :)
