Episode 2714: Ham Hands Onana, Harry Not A Hammer, Fastest Man In Ireland, Hannah’s Holy Trinity
Punching an opposing player in the face is NOT a punishable offence, and we’re happy to provide clarity to our listeners on this subject as some of them may have been a little confused watching Manchester United labour to a 1-0 win over Wolves last night.
We welcome Ireland’s fastest man in history, Israel Olatunde, into studio to talk to us about making it as a Leaving Cert question, adapting to life after college as a professional athlete, breaking national records, and whether his good friend Rhadisat Adeleke can win a medal at next week’s World Athletics Championships.
Plus there’s Murph V Rob Heffernan, Hannah Tyrrell’s holy trinity of medals in Irish sport, Harry Maguire’s principled stand as his move to West Ham stalls, and how Jordan Henderson is faring in the Saudi heat.
