Thanks for that. Ovett was much maligned in the press but he was just very shy and very much his own man. Anyone that thought him arrogant never knew the real Steve, he's as humble as the come.
Rumour has it that his daughter only found out he was an Olympic champion when at school and the class were doing something on the Olympics. The teacher announced one of the children's fathers was a Gold medal winner and she didn't know as Steve had never shown her his medal. He didn't feel it was important.
A great man.
