The Sun guide to 4,000 years of sporting highlights by the team who gave you the UK's bestselling newspaper and the British Press Award winning Hold Ye Front Page. When humans first tried to run faster than any other human for fun, or shot an arrow that wasn't aimed at lunch, sport was invented (or if you follow Ernest Hemingway's rule -- games). If you have ever wondered when ball sports were invented, or why the first Olympics in 776BC didn't have a marathon, or when golf was first played, or what is the association between milking stools and cricket then this is the book for you. Packed with the extraordinary history behind all the major, and many of the minor sports, this is a history of sport like no other: historically accurate and hysterically funny. Written by the award-winning writers of the UK bestseller Hold Ye Front Page and the people behind the headlines that have propelled The Sun to be the undisputed Number 1 newspaper in the UK , this is an irreverent look at the great sporting moments of the last 4,000 years.
