We continue our series on Home Grown Icons - British black pioneers from the world of sport, business, acting, and music

Our Home Grown Icon this week .....  Daley Thompson OBE

Francis Morgan Ayodélé "Daley" Thompson OBE was born in Notting Hill, London, on 30th July 1958. He is an English former decathlete who won the decathlon gold medal at the Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984, and broke the world record at the event four times.

With four world records, two Olympic gold medals, three Commonwealth titles, and wins in the World and European Championships, Daley is considered by many to be one of the greatest decathletes of all time. Robert Chalmers described him as "the greatest all-round athlete this country has ever produced.

Daley was forced to retire from athletics in 1992, due to a persistent hamstring injury. In the 1990s he played professional football for Mansfield Town and Stevenage FC and ilkeston FC.  He also worked as fitness coach for Wimbledon and also Luton Town football clubs. He also took part in motorsport, entering the Ford Credit Fiesta Challenge Championship in 1994.

Thompson worked as a fitness trainer and motivational speaker, as well as appearing at corporate events. He was also well known for his appearances in commercials for the drink Lucozade in the 1980s.

Daley was an ambassador at the London 2012 Olympics and continues to give talks and makes occasional appearances on TV

Daley - all of us at Station FM say thank you
