You may notice that Mike’s right eye is closed, it looks like it has been hit by a squash ball. Actually, Mike had a stroke 25 years ago and is blind in this eye. This however has not stopped Mike from playing No.1 for England O45s and being the O45 National Racketball champion. He is also still hoping to win a few more titles and represent England again.
