The death has been announced of the great Roger Bannister, the first man to run a mile in under four minutes. He reached the age of 88. RIP ROGER another Great British Athelete. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11764114
I couldn't care less about his running fame so I was surprised to find that he was actually a junior doctor and went on to be a Consultant Neurologist. It's a pity the less useful, self serving, sporting bunch can only go on about him running, as if it was the most important thing since the big bang.
