The biggest fan of Shane Warne

Ian Wooldridge was a renowned sports writer. For 47 years he wrote for the 'Daily Mail'.

He was a big fan of the 'King of Spin', Shane Warne.

At the Sydney Test of 1994/95 season, Wooldridge did something special to get an interview of Warne.

He went out and bought the biggest trophy he could find and had 'Daily Mail Award for Excellence in Sport' engraved on it. 

He presented it to a proud Warne and talked with him for hours.
