\r\n\r\nJohn Inverdale has been one of the BBC’s most recognisable faces and voices for the past 25 years, presenting seven Olympic Games among a raft of major sporting events, and winning Radio Broadcaster of the Year in 1997.\r\n\r\nHe was educated in Bristol, and spent some of his formative teenage days in the clubhouses of the Memorial Ground and Nevil Road learning about beer. He used to watch Bristol Rovers at Eastville, Bristol Bulldogs speedway at the same venue, and Bristol Rugby Club at the Memorial Ground. His Bristolian sporting childhood is now just a scrapbook of fading memories.
