Remember in More Of That Jazz..."Rock N Roll just pays the bills/Only football gives me thrills".... one suspects Roger might be a futbol fan... ;-)

I don't think Freddie was so much into football (soccer), in one of the biographies (surely not everything is true in there either)it's said that he didn't even know who Maradonna was, when he met him in.
He used to be very good at sports when he was in school in India though. Referring to the book Queen - as it began: "I loathed cricket, and long-distance running, I was completly useless at both!" recalled Freddie. "But I could sprint, I was good at hockey, and I was just brilliant in the boxing ring, believe it or not!" At the age of ten he became the school champion in table tennis and later won the Junior All-rounder trophy in 1958.
I don't think later in his life he did so much sport, maybe kept in shape in the gym once in a while or playing tennis during vacation on Ibiza.
As far as the other three are concerned I don't know. I remember Roger watching a boxing fight while beeing interviews (you could see the tv in the mirror). Roger also likes cars, so maybe he is interessted in motorsports??

Roger can ski and sail and apparently John is an amateurish surfer. Now that is something I'd both love and hate to see.


I've read about what you say with Roger. With John I'm not sure. Where did you hear/read this from?
