Eating now a weight off mind of retired champion AP McCoy

Editor's Viewpoint

Many people have weight problems, but champion jockey AP McCoy has revealed that since his retirement he has been piling on the weight.

He is probably eating no more than a normal person after years of enforced abstinence, and he should feel no guilt about this.

It all goes to show the almost super-human Spartan abstinence he required for two decades to control his weight and to remain champion for so long in such a demanding and brutal sport.

If he now wants to enjoy a few Ulster fries, he certainly is entitled to them after all his years of sacrifice to give us so many winners.
