A glittering array of sporting personalities regale their amusing tales in this compilation of over 300 after-dinner stories and anecdotes, published in aid of the children's charity SPARKS. Readers will be thoroughly entertained as the wittiest after-dinner speakers recount their most interesting tales. These are real stories from their lives both inside and outside of the world of sport; some already known and much loved, others untold until now. From Dickie Bird to Frankie Dettori, Henry Cooper to Gary Lineker, Sally Gunnell to Sandy Lyle, all will reveal the funniest moments in their lives - the disasters, embarrassments, the laughter and the tears that top-class sport has to offer. Featuring a selection of cartoons and photographs, the book will appeal to sports enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds.
