I'm really glad that Kelly Holmes won this - very well deserved. Though not as glad as 17 year old boxer Amir Khan. Apparently, in an interview last week he said:
"I really think that Kelly Holmes deserves to win this as she's getting a bit old now."
She's 30, I'm 33, so I'm just off to take Hemlock! Logans Run?
Another fun story regarding a previous Sports Personality of the Year ...
Sebastian Coe went to a charity match at Anfield. The Liverpudlian on the gate said:
"Sorry Sir, you can't come in this way, you'll have to go round to the other gate."
"Do you know who I am?" replied the famous runner.
"Yes Sir, I do, it won't take you very long then will it!"
True story & it could only happen in Liverpool (or maybe Dublin!)
