If ever there was a perfect ambassador for the sport, it’s John Young Stewart, who celebrates this year the 50th anniversary of his third and final World Championship.

It’s been a long ‘retirement’ for the man from Dumbuck, but the fact that he still works hard and is as famous today as he was back then – unless you are a security man on the grid in Miami – is a reflection of how canny this Scot has been as the curator of his own legacy. And how, without being boorish or self-obsessed about it, he has maintained his reputation so deftly that he remains just as well-loved by the British public.
