David Walsh: Episode 95

11Jul

David Walsh is one of the world's most acclaimed sports writers and his work was one of the cornerstones in the building of a successful case against Lance Armstrong. David speaks to Jarlath about having a fascination with sport from a very early age, the fallout with Stephen Roche in front of the Irish public, his obsession with the Lance Armstrong charade, and being played by Chris O'Dowd in the upcoming Working Title picture 'The Program.'

 

David also speaks openly about why he believes Jonny Wilkinson's selfish nature may prevent him from taking the next step in his career, overcoming a major stutter, regarding enthusiasm as his only quality, the problem with humility, who he thinks will win the Tour de France before weighing in on the Mo Farah debate.
