SynopsisOn Your Farts, Get Set, Go! by Mitchell Symons
Mitchell Symons, the revolting reference expert, turns his attention to the world of sport. Whether you're a sports nut or more of an armchair follower, there will be facts and stories to entertain and educate you. Find out: which striker's shorts fell down when he took a penalty; when some ducklings interrupted a rowing race; who played in the longest tennis match ever; and, which football team's fanzine is called 'Linesman, You're Rubbish'.
ReviewsMitch knows more totally useless things about useless subjects than anybody on Earth. Chris Tarrant
