    Sorry, The best sportsman we've ever produced?
    Daley Thompson
    Steve Redgrave
    Botham
    Chris Hoy
    Seb Coe
    Lennox Lewis
    Phil Taylor

    I think they might well be rather more worthy of that title
    It's better to burn out, than to fade away.

    Why? Because they are largely BBC faves that conform and never say a word out of place?? If Ronnie had never challenged the cosiness of the sport might he also be up there. In which case, is this not a tad unhealthy. In any case, some names on your list are at least a little tainted by association by recent events. Any british cyclist has had a huge advantage of the UK's 'professionalism' that has given them an edge. Ronnies skill is pure and not attained by being blessed by a special cue for example. Apparently!
