    Britain's greatest ever sportsman ... by a mile

    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?

    I had to google this because I couldn't believe it

    Surely can't be beat. Unbelievable achievements and so modest too. A true lover of sport. Well done that man. The following article is well worth the read ...
