Sari Barabas: Opera singer celebrated at Glyndebourne

Sari Barabas was a glamorous Hungarian coloratura soprano who, despite the interruption of the Second World War when she was in her twenties, had a long and successful career in opera and operetta. She was a member of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich for 22 years and also sang in Vienna, London and, most memorably of all, perhaps, at Glyndebourne. For five summers during the 1950s she appeared there in three different operas, delighting audiences with her grace and beauty as well as her flexible voice.

Timo Konietzka: Footballer andeuthanasia advocate

On 24 August 1963, playing as a striker for Borussia Dortmund against Werder Bremen, Timo Konietzka scored the first goal of the match in the first minute. It was also the first goal in the newly formed German Bundesliga. Dortmund were one of 16 teams picked to form West Germany's first top-level league since the Second World War, and although Bremen won 3-2, Konietzka's goal was the one fans and commentators remember. He played for Borussia Dortmund from 196065, scoring 93 goals in 123 matches. Sadly, his historic goal was not captured on camera.

James Lawton: This prodigal son deserves no forgiveness

Now that the Suarez affair has dragged football into ultimate ignominy – the worry of a bank that its image is being tarnished by association with Liverpool Football Club (it's a bit like Al Capone complaining about the exorbitant cost of a glass of rye) – you have to wonder if the reputation of the English game has much further to fall.
