Michael Schumacher

My belated Christmas present addition would be for Michael Schumacher to make a speedy and full recovery. I had the pleasure of spending 3 days with him and other sports personalities in Portugal for a charity football match organized by Louis Figo and throughout the whole time he was an absolute gentleman. It wasn’t simply when the cameras were rolling or when he was in large crowds. Even when there were just a few people around and a child wanted an autograph or photograph he was full of smiles and only too willing to oblige. His on-track image and attitude to winning was almost machine-like but his off-track attitude could not have been more different.portrait13
