Mae Young, superstar of the first generation of professional women wrestlers, has died aged 90

Mae Young: Wrestler who showed herself to be as hard as the men and who revelled in her status as a hated 'heel'

Female emancipation has taken many forms, but few as gaudy and violent as the breakthrough largely pioneered by Mae Young, better known as "the Great Mae Young," superstar of the first generation of professional women wrestlers in the US, who conclusively gave the lie to generalisations about the gentler sex. In sport records are made to be broken, but Young's feat of appearing professionally in eight different decades may never be surpassed.

'Don Jose', as he liked to be called: Sulaiman at a weigh-in in Las Vegas in 2004

Jose Sulaiman: Administrator respected, feared and hated in equal measure whose reforms made boxing a safer sport
