Jack Rowell

Who emerged from a troubled and much-criticised season with a Triple Crown, a Five Nations' Championship and the flickerings of a decent rugby union team

Graham Bradley

Who came up with the perfect response after being sacked from the Champion Hurdle favourite for oversleeping by beating it on a long-shot in the big race at Cheltenham

Georgi Kinkladze

For yet another piece of sublime skill with his goal for Manchester City which lit up Saturday afternoon

Tim Henman

Who continued his rapid rise up the world tennis rankings by reaching his second successive ATP Tour semi-final in Copenhagen


Joe Bugner

Whose much-trumpeted comeback ended in ignominous - and thoroughly deserved - defeat by Scott Welch in Berlin

Indian cricket

Outplayed by Sri Lanka in the World Cup semi-final and disgraced by the fans who started setting fire to various parts of the stadium in Calcutta
