Nicol '9th Greatest Sportsman'

Peter Nicol has been voted the "9th Greatest British Sportsman of the last ten years" in a Guardian blog poll.

Ok, so it was not exactly a scientific exercise (see the blog for the numbers who voted in their, er, masses).

But is was good to see the Guardian finding time to mention the sport, even though it was in an idle moment during a rain break in the Henman v Lopez match at Wimbledon.

The full list of the great and the good reads:

1. Lennox Lewis
2. Joe Calzaghe
3. Paula Radcliffe
4. Tim Henman
5. Ben Ainslie
6. Tony McCoy
7. Stephen Hendry
8. Colin Montgomerie
9. Peter Nicol
10. Phil Taylor

Edging out "The Power" - who'd have thought it?
