Britain's greatest ever sportsman?
This guy sounds like he was a boy's own comic creation.
He won an Olympic gold medal and was also a Wimbledon winner at tennis.
He captained Manchester City and England at football
He hit a 100 a Lords against the MCC at cricket
He had a 147 break at snooker
He was a scratch golfer.
He was also a director of ICI.
Can you think of anyone who could top that?
Surely can't ever be beaten?! Unbelievable achievements and so modest too. A true lover of sport. Well done that man.
I had to google this because I couldn't believe it

But ... here's another contender!!!
What about WG Grace ?!
He was a reknown cricketer and both a bowler and batsmen but did you know....
He played football for the Wanderers
he was a champion 440m hurdler
He was a qualified doctor
He played lawn bowls and he founded the English Bowling Association in 1903 and became its first president. He also captained England in that sport.

I thought the achievements of Max Woosnam was common knowledge?
I might of picked it up through going to Main Road for a few seasons actually.
