The former English footballer and author of I, Robot discusses being taller than C-3PO, the reading habits of fellow footballers and what it's like to get 60,000 cheering fans onto their feet.
It’s been a great year for the celebrity memoir. Here are some of our favourites to read this Christmas.
First things first: yes I am very tall, no the weather isn’t different up here, and no I don’t play basketball. Glad that’s out the way. I’ve been a professional footballer for 20 years, have 42 England caps, have scored over 100 Premier League goals and hold the record for the most headed goals in Premier League history. In my time I’ve been promoted, relegated, won trophies, gone months without scoring, been bought, sold, loaned and abused - and I've loved almost every moment of it.
