Favourite holiday destination: Amsterdam

Favourite food(s): Pasta is soul food for me, with my Sicilian background. The English side of my family always ate roast on a Sunday and I try and keep the tradition alive with my wife and daughter. My father taught me to clean my plate, which is why I’m plump.

Pet peeves: Interviewers who won't ask a proper question. Players who won't sign autographs. Coaches who are late for press conferences. Presenter Profiles

Best characteristic trait: The things I inherited from my mother: an equable temperament and a rather odd sense of humour

Any guilty indulgences: Peanut butter late at night

Something else you’d like the world to know about you: I have a BA Hons in English and Art History. If I hadn't fallen into broadcasting I would have been a museum curator, specialising in Dutch 17th Century painting.

First sporting memory: Pele playing for Brazil at the 1970 World Cup. The greatest soccer team ever.

Best sporting memory: On a magical day in May 1979 I took 9 for 27 playing for the Post Office against Mangotsfield in Bristol. For the one and only time in my life the ball swung either way at my behest. Life has never been so pleasant since.

Worst sporting memory: Allan Donald running out Lance Klusener in the 1999 World Cup semifinal

Greatest sporting achievement (‘A’ team rugby at school, provincial/international colours, broke a window with golf ball etc.): I once bowled a dot ball to Sunil Gavaskar at Supersport Park. I was playing for the South African Press and he was playing for the Indian Press. After that dot ball he steered me to third man for a single and then Yashpal Sharma heaved me three times onto the grass bank.

I once hit a golf ball 400 metres: it was on a par five dogleg right at Centurion Country Club. As my ball landed 250 metres from the tee, a sprinkler head sprang out of the ground and catapulted it a further 150 metres. Then I missed the green and four putted for bogey from the fringe.

SuperSport career highlight: Surviving 10 years of Super Saturday with Neil Andrews and Terry Paine.
