Britain's greatest ever sportsman?
Max Woosnam. 


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
, and there's a link below:

I might of picked it up through going to Main Road for a few seasons actually.
