Justine Henin

Here is a classic French electric locomotive which operated between 1926 and 1942.

In the Mulhouse Museum
And an HO scale model by an obscure firm called Trains France.

There is something beguilingly ugly about certain French locomotives and indeed cars.

A Panhard
Favourite Sportsmen.

I'm not claiming these folk are the best in their field - but simply that I love watching them perform.

1. Justine Henin

When she was forced into premature retirement (for the second time) a couple of years ago, I was genuinely saddened: the thought of not seeing this utterly wonderful tennis player ever again.

For me, head and shoulders above everyone else.

2. Tim Henman – an artist at the net.

3. Roger Federer – wonderful.

4. Lasse Viren – Finnish long distance runner who every Olympics came out of the tundra to torment his opponents.

5. Johan Cruyff – I prefer watching footage of him to either Pele, Messi or Maradonna

6. Sugar Ray Leonard  - artist.

7. Chic Charnley – utter eccentric and brilliant striker of a ball.

8.  Bobby Russell – a pleasure to watch – always made space for himself.

9. Fernando Torres – dynamic and lethal.

10. Stan Collymore – ditto
