I was walking across College Green near Parliament one day when a colleague stopped me and said "would you like to meet two Brazilian footballers?" I said "Yes" and moments later I was shaking the hand of Carlos Alberto and Jairzinho of the 1970 Brazilian World Cup winning team!
A few years later I got to shake Gordon Banks' famous right hand (what a save!)
