Editor's Viewpoint: Relating to Rory

In an age when so many sporting stars appear robotic and devoid of personality, Rory McIlroy is a refreshing change. We all shared his pain at his last round collapse at Augusta, but the young man has remained personally upbeat.

Whether it is wearing geek spectacles or forgetting his golf clubs, he is a figure we can identify with and that helps us to empathise with him in both victory and defeat.

Keep your chin up Rory, sport needs more characters like you.
