About this deal

But while they went on to find fame on the field, he found a career watching, writing and talking about sport.

In the 1700s, an Irish noblewoman, on discovering her husband has been murdered, drinks handfuls of his blood and composes an extraordinary poem. The story of extraordinary women who lost their way – their sense of self, their identity, their freedom – and found it again through walking in the wild. My Sporting Life is Sir Michael’s love letter to sport, to the heroes and legends of his Yorkshire youth, to the characters of the international games he watched and wrote about, and to the very idea of sport itself. But while they went on to find fame on the field, he spent the next few decades watching, writing and talking about sport.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.
