Anyone who watched The Graham Norton Show a few weeks ago would have seen one of Norton’s guests, Tracey Ullman, discussing her new comedy sketch show. Ullman’s interview was followed by a clip which showed the comedienne, looking like a dead ringer for Dame Judy Dench, in a very funny sketch in which Dench was caught shoplifting

BERLIN, March 7, 2016 – Laureus World Sports Academy Member and athletics legend Michael Johnson describes Jamaican sprint star Usain Bolt as ‘the greatest’ in an exclusive interview on Laureus.com, after the triple Olympic sprint champion was nominated again for the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award.
In the interview, available for media use, Johnson reviews all the track and field Nominees for the 2016 Laureus World Sports Awards and looks ahead to the Rio Olympic Games. Among his comments:

“Who can stop Bolt for the Laureus Award? I look at Stephen Curry and what he did last year, winning the NBA Championship, league MVP and just doing unbelievable things, where there are so many great athletes. He still stood out against the field.” Continue reading
