Episode 1633: Ten Years On From Tiger Vs Fire Hydrant, We Look Back At One Of The Most Outrageous Sports Stories In History, Amazon Is Watching Spurs
In November 2009, Tiger Woods was still the most bankable star in world sport – with gold-standard commercial partners, an idyllic home life and an extraordinary run of success on the golf course.
Then he drove into a fire hydrant, and his entire world went to shit.

Spurs came back from 2-0 down at home to Olympiacos to win 4-2 in the Champions League last night – asked what he said at half-time to rouse his troops, he basically said we’ll have to wait until the Amazon Prime documentary is released to find out… what is going on?!
???? Reporter: “What did you say to the Spurs players at half-time?”
???? Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho: “You will have to wait a few months and buy the Amazon movie.”
