1:B - The race will end, as usual, on the Champs-Élysées in Paris., 2:C - England have been runners-up three times and New Zealand have been runners-up once. , 3:C - West Indies beat them in the 1979 final; Australia beat them in the 1987 final; and Pakistan beat them in the 1992 final. , 4:B - “Now I need to find a garage for a cow, although I have no idea what a cow garage looks like,” joked Federer at the time. Hilarious., 5:B - Hingis is the youngest winner of any senior title at Wimbledon. She was only 15 years and 282 days old when she won the doubles in 1996. And she won the singles a year later. No pressure, Coco., 6:C - Crouch had already scored twice when the penalty was awarded in the 81st minute, so he took the ball and stepped up to complete what would be his first – and perhaps only – hat-trick for England. He chipped the ball towards the goal but, instead of watching it sail into the net, he looked on in horror as it flew over the bar. “It was highly embarrassing,” said Crouch later. “When that penalty went over, I thought to myself I’m never going to have another chance to score a hat-trick for my country again and I’ve just tried a Panenka. I felt like the biggest knob.” It looked as if his chance to score a hat-trick for England had gone but, with one minute left to play, he scored again. “Thank God the ball came to me, I finished off and got my hat-trick. Thankfully I’ve got that moment and can show my kids the ball and say that I’ve scored a hat-trick for England. I almost didn’t have that just from being stupid.”, 7:B - And yet, for a big man, he really was good with his feet., 8:B - The World Cup begins on Friday in Liverpool, with Australia (nicknamed the Diamonds) favourites to retain their trophy., 9:B - The total prize money was £1,700. It is now £8.5m. , 10:B - He was a big Beckham fan in the early days, saying: "I liked him a lot. He was my idol. That’s why I wear a long-sleeved jersey and the No7. He had a lot of class on and off the pitch. That’s what I liked about him. No one had the right foot he had."
