My favourite book or movie ... I enjoy the Bruce Willis Die Hard movies. They're fast paced, action packed and over-the-top, with some corny humour thrown in, and the bad guys get what they deserve.
If I could go anywhere ... I was born and spent the first half of my life in London; lived in Hong Kong for two years and have spent the past 13 years in Australia - with lots of international travel in-between. I love India - it is a place of such extremes, incredibly friendly people, wonderful history, and amazing temples and palaces.
If I wasn't doing this job ... I'd love to be a member of the IOC or FIFA selection committee. Travelling the world, all expenses paid, and being lavishly entertained and spoiled by all the representative countries that want your vote for the Games.
The person I most admire ... is my wife and not just for putting up with me. She built and runs an extremely successful business, manages all the domestic aspects of the home, organizes our three children and their activities, and can manage two conversations at once whilst writing a to-do list!
I really hate ... Inconsiderate and bad driving - I'll need more than a column for this one!
