Sir: In your leading article of 12 June you point out the dispiriting dearth of our sporting heroes. May I suggest one you have overlooked? Desmond Douglas has been one of the most exhilarating talents in world table tennis for more than a decade, but he has been an inspiration in equal measure by his unfailing and outstanding gentlemanly conduct.

Yours faithfully,


Mitcham, Surrey
