Football & horse racing - Mick Channon's son pens a book about his dad's sporting adventures

The former England international footballer Mick Channon is one of a rare breed, having reached the top in two sports.

He is remembered fondly as a player at both Southampton and Portsmouth football clubs, before he switched to horse racing.

However in a new book he's described as grumpy, foul-mouthed and short-tempered. The author of the book should know - it's his own son.

Mike Hall has been to West Ilsley to speak to the Channons.
