Gary Lineker, officially Gary Winston Lineker OBE, has had an outstanding sporting career, making his name at Leicester City, before transferring to the likes of Everton, Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur.

Interestingly, Gary Lineker is the only professional football player to have never received a red or yellow card whilst on the pitch. Hopefully his calm demeanour will mean these jovial comments go down well in the Lineker household.
