Personal Quote:

I don't think I'm doing the nation a great service by being decrepit in front of their fireplaces. Sport is different from doing an arts programme where you could be 103. If you're talking about athletic young people, it's inappropriate to get too old doing it, in my view. It's only my view, nobody else said that to me, that's my view, my view and my decision. (Speaking in 2004) See more »
