Sport is a part of our life, be it as a supporter of it who visits competitions to cheer on teams or just an individual, or be it as a man or woman who is active in sport and possibly even participates in competitions by himself/herself. In a certain degree, many people have a sport which they share with passion. That is why I wonder: does a person in (professional) sport exist who you admire and why?

It has not to be a certain sport - it can be all kinds of sports, even the ones which are controversial in calling sports, so snooker, darts and even the racing sports (formula 1 for instance). And it does not matter whether it is a popular sport as in football or not so known in the public, say sailing. From a team to an individual sport, no limit exists. The sports and thus their personalities are not restricted.

Maybe you are doing sports for yourself and has a role model who is an incentive for you to get better and to improve your skills?

Have fun to talk!

So in your opinion he is the best player in the world, even better than his eternal rival Ronaldo in fighting for being the world best footballer? do you think that MPappe may best him in a few years?

True, I liked and still like his individual skills, but I think he is at his peak now.

Of all time, probably Ronaldo (the real one). Best striker of all time and would have been the best player ever were it not for those injuries. Surely every football fan loves Ronaldo.

Favourite of the current players, I like Harry Kane and Troy Deeney Deeney as well as being a good pro and working his way up talks so much sense and is a down to earth guy, which makes me like him more.

You meant the Brazilian one who got the top scorer with 8 goals at the World Cup 2002 and scored twice in the final and thus made Brazil to the champions of the world for the fith and up today the last time? I remember me well, as he botched the Victory for the Germans! -.-" that is why it is so hard for me to love him but you are right! he was a fantastic striker in a time when Brazil still had a true magic team with Ronaldinho, Rivaldo and Kaka just to name a few. The last glory generation.

It should be an honour to be humiliated in a World Cup final by the great Ronaldo imo.

Do you think he will be the same, id est the world best at Juventus? when he played for Real Madrid, he had his players around him to shine, in Italy too?

Would even go a step further and say that it should be an honour to play against or with him in a team.

Mbappe isn't overrated at all imo, he will be the best forward in the world for a long time. But I agree with the rest of your post.

WIth Roger Federer, he shared the top of Tennis in my view. Both are living legends in Tennis and the greatest players in this sport, even better than Sampras and Lenld ever were. Good choice!

No, I am about 3 weeks older.

Didn’t know him personally. I just like the idea of an F1 race winner basically being the same age as me. Plus he’s exciting to watch.


Federer is great choice as well. From tennis I would also throw in Del Porto, he’s a great sportsman and seems a lovely fellow on tv.
