In tennis, the superbrat John McEnroe and Illie Nastase are two names that spring immediately to mind.
In snooker, we have Ronnie OÃ‚Â’ Sullivan, the three-time world champion, and Alex Higgins to name but two.
And football has countless such stars, including Wayne Rooney, Paul Gascoigne, Eric Cantona among others.
But all that and more another day.
