Olympic champion swimmer Chad le Clos, whose memoirÂ Unbelievable!Â is out now, reveals that he would have chosen to be a South African soccer star.
In an interview withÂ SABC News, Le Closâ€™ dad, Bert, who played youth football with current Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund, recalls how his son started out playing football, and had to be coaxed into swimming.
â€œI loved football when I was younger,â€ Le Clos agrees, â€œthat was my first love, as my dad says. I think, when you get to that age, my dad helped me to realise that swimming is where my future is going to be.â€
