John Anderson tells the tale of how a humble insurance clerk from Guildford came to rove the world covering some of the biggest sports events of the past 25 years. Now updated with six new chapters including his stories and insights from the heart of the England camp during World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012, A Great Face for Radio is a hilarious memoir of his experiences as a radio sports correspondent and commentator. While reporting from Olympic Games, World Cups and world title fights, John has been in the thick of football riots, was almost arrested during the 1996 Atlanta bombing, had to flee bottle-wielding fans at a rap gig and survived gunfire during a high-speed car chase to a Johannesburg brothel. He has rubbed shoulders with stars such as Pele, Mike Tyson, Dame Kelly Holmes and Carl Lewis, and once interviewed David Beckham in a French gents toilet.
John Anderson is a freelance sports commentator, reporter and writer with over a quarter of a century's broadcasting experience. He has covered six Olympic Games, three World Cups and more than 150 England internationals. He currently works for Sky Sports, BBC Sport and talkSPORT, for whom he is the England football correspondent.
