    Jessica Ennis, great athlete (from Yorkshire=bonus points), seems like a genuine necie girl and is a real beauty as well!

    LeBron James cos he's the Ultimate baller, but yet humble and passionate at the same time about the sport. Just seems to go out there and enjoy himself which makes him even more fun to watch.

    Rajon Rondo from the NBA as well- he's a genius floor general, shame he's injured at the moment

    Cristiano Ronaldo- many people hate him, but I think the man's an absolute beast on the pitch. He's calmed down a lot over recent years and isn't throwing his tantrums. Messi is still better, but I'll always prefer Ronaldo

    Urska Zolnir - A Slovenian Olympic judoka who won gold. I met her shortly after she won her medal and got her signature, which I'm dead chuffed about. She's quite shy, quiet and very reserved. We both shook hands too! Zolnir is one of my heroes.

    Gemma Gibbons - A British Olympic judoka who won silver. She never gave up and carried on fighting even though she was being beaten by her last opponent. She is also one of my heroes.

    Jessica Ennis - She seems like a really nice and decent person with a strong will to carry on.

    From my favourite sports team Charlton, it has to be: Clive Mendonca, Mark Kinsella, John Robinson and Dean Kiely. More recently, Chris Solly and Johnnie Jackson.

    Others from around the world are: David Beckham, Maria Sharapova, CM Punk, John Cena and Colt Cabana (if they count), Mo, and Bradley Wiggins.

    Andrés Iniesta - Hardly gets the recognition he deserves... And his ability to perform when it really matters.
    Jess Ennis - Really hard working and managed to cope with the massive amount of pressure at London 2012...
    Xavi - Let's face it, if you say Iniesta you have to say Xavi....
    Rafa Nadal

    Others: Ronaldo, Messi, Mo Farah, Kelly Holmes, Usain Bolt, Tommy Haas...

    Scholes >>>

    "When we were in training, I used to do a lot of tricks which hardly any players at the club could do. Once i was showing my skills to Scholes. After i finished it, Scholes took the ball and pointed to a tree which was about 50m from where we were standing. He said, I'm going to hit it in one shot. He kicked and hit the tree. He asked me to do the same; I kicked about 10 times, but still couldn't hit it, with that accuracy. He smiled and left." - Ronaldo

    I think we live in an era where you all need to be fortunate and humble enough to admit we saw the likes Lionel Messi, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Michael Schumacher, Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, Tiger Woods, and Roger Federer play live.

    That story doesn't affect my opinion of Scholes but has encouraged me to like Ronaldo a bit more for his telling it.

    Football: Paul Scholes, Peter Schmeichel. I'm a United fan, so obvious really.
    Motorsports: Kimi Raikkonen, Jason Plato. Bad boys of motorsport - always good for some fun and both quality drivers.
    Other: Eve Muirhead, Ronnie O'Sullivan. Crazy crush for Eve. It's the way she shouts "Hard" repeatedly on the ice. Ronnie because it's Ronnie. How can you not love Ronnie?
