And finally… Emile Heskey on Rod Hull and Emu

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Rewind to April ’89 and a shy little 11-year-old called Emile Heskey (or Emily, according to Rod Hull) finds himself on national TV facing the type of assault course familiar to any square-eyed, TV addicted child of the 80s. Unsurprisingly young Emile has pace and power in abundance as his team storms to victory, although he does struggle with a round object mid-race [insert cheap gag here].

Hat-tip to VideotapeFTW for the footage.
