About the book

The world of sport has produced some memorable characters – yet the wit demonstrated off the track often scores even higher. Contenders for jocular gold include Muhammad Ali and Sebastian Coe, while among the gagsters in the grandstands are Oscar Wilde, Robbie Williams and Albert Einstein.

A collection of the wittiest words from a wide variety of sports, Sporting Wit is top of its field, the perfect gift for every sport connoisseur.
