We admire sporting hero’s, the latest being Lewis Hamilton who’s last corner composure snatched back the F1 championship from Felipe Massa. The TV coverage showed human emotions in the raw with the delight of the Ferrari team turn to despair on realising Hamilton had come 5th.

Different emotions have been displayed at Tottenham with the arrival of Harry Rednapp who has inspired the team desperately low on confidence to get 7 points from the last 3 games. Whereas the England cricket teams woeful 10-wicket defeat at the hands of the Superstars XI in Antigua shows you need to be motivated if you are going to perform, no matter how talented you are. Many have questioned the ethics of Sir Allen Stanford but if he can inspire another generation of West Indian cricketeers then it will very worthwhile.

On the home front one of out sporting hero’s is Caroline Shaw, Chief Executive of the Christie who successfully completed the New York marathon (her first) in a very credible 4′11″.
