Description

For the very first time Jonny Wilkinson opens up to reveal what it is like to be the world's most famous rugby player and an international sporting superstar. "My World" is a fascinating insight into his motivations, thoughts, hopes and fears as he discusses topics as far ranging as playing for England, his all-time heroes, becoming a celebrity, what it is like to be on the pitch with the hopes of a nation resting on your shoulders and in your feet. For the first time, Jonny Wilkinson talks openly about the England World Cup campaign and the pressure he was under in those dramatic final moments when he won the cup for his country. "My World" will be lavishly illustrated and designed with over 100 photographs of Jonny Wilkinson playing and relaxing, many of which will never have been published before.show more

About Jonny Wilkinson

Jonny Wilkinson became England's youngest international for 71 years when he made his debut at fly-half at 18 years old in March 1998. By the end of 2003 he had become a sporting legend. His drop goal in the last seconds of the 2003 Rugby World Cup final won the trophy for England, and he himself was the leading points-scorer in the tournament with 113 points in 6 matches. He is England's all-time record points scorer with 817 points from his 52 caps. He has also won three British and Irish Lions caps. He was awarded the MBE in January 2003, the youngest rugby player of all time to achieve this honour.show more
