Really? All he ever did was run round in a circle, to get back to where he started: pointless activity, pointless life!

Quite right, Ron, not a patch on your brilliant existence.  ::)

Perhaps a bit of casual research before you opine on another person’s life.   >:(

Parking the inspirational affect he has had on generations of young athletes (although no doubt you would classify their efforts as similarly pointless), he was also a renowned neurologist, publishing a number of papers, a hospital trustee, editor of a medical textbook, and by all accounts a loved family man.

If I get to the end of my time and have led a life even half as “pointless” as that, I think I’ll have done well.  ::)

Glad to hear that he put his academic side to some use, but as you rightly surmised, his athletic side is the pointless part - what good is it? The same goes for any sport, of course.

Yes Baza, a sad loss but he catered for the women in the generation before mine.  Mary Quant for instance is more my time ;)

No.  Another bastard gone.  Their numbers are now very small indeed as most have gone to hopefully a very unpleasant place 8) 8) :y
