How can you possibly have a footballer as an icon?
Anyone can kick a football but...could one paint the Sistine chapel, as an example, or transplant a human heart?

Have some sense, for heavens sake!

Though, mind you, Beefy Botham was pretty iconic.

Tonight it's artists and writers. The choices are:
Pablo Picasso
Virginia Woolf
Alfred Hitchcock
Andy Warhol

Not really the sharpest knife in the drawer, are you..

The first category on the list, is sport..

I don’t recall Da Vinci’s escapades with a football at Fiorentina though he could have kicked a cat around the streets of the old town, back in the day...

Hitchcock was an artist in the sense of camerawork but not in the accepted sense. He isn't known for writing many books either.

In old town Firenze, he was well known as a diver, quite ducky in fact!

Poor choices, really... Leonardo da Vinci would be my own candidate in this category..

Scrap that... forgot it was the 20th century...

I’d have to say Tolkien... the world he created has inspired many an author to take up a pen.. parents have taken names from this creation for their own children, who have gone on to read the books, play the games and in some cases, lived the lifestyle..

Tiggy and Tolkien? I would never have guessed that.
