His captain drives a Porsche 911 Turbo (£110K) and an Aston Martin Vanquish (from £130K), while his top striker owns a Range Rover (up to £100k), a Bentley Continental GT (from £124k) and a Lamborghini Gallardo (from £130K), but England manager Roy Hodgson took delivery of a far more pedestrian vehicle this week.

Meanwhile, the new New World hosts prompted some salutary questions about racing and politics, in the Gulf and elsewhere, which is no bad thing.
