Sir Roger went on to become a well respected Consultant in Neurology and did some marvellous work in that profession.

Never knew that. I’d always assumed he carried on doing athletics until he retired

Re: R.I.P. Sir Roger Bannister

I never watched athletics back then....I was only 4 ☺Not even sure we had a tv 😔

However, not to take anything away from the man, it's yet another sad loss. RIP 😕
