Living on the Deadline​​​​​​​

 Synopsis

How did a lad born 50 yards from Wigan Pier come to travel the world covering the biggest stories in sport for a quarter of a century? From Sydney to Rome to Tirana to Tokyo, Living on the Deadline reveals what it's really like to be an international writer on the road. As a columnist with the Daily Express and chief sports writer with the Press Association, Frank Malley has amassed a wealth of poignant and humorous anecdotes while reporting on World Cups, Ryder Cups, tennis Grand Slams and Ashes Test matches. Along the way he has sailed with Ben Ainslie, kicked with Jonny Wilkinson and faced Greg Rusedski's 149mph serve. His memoir, full of wry observations, contains unique glimpses into the grandeur of George Best's funeral inside Stormont Castle, the up-close brutality of Mike Tyson, the heady emotion of the London Olympics and Wigan Athletic's historic FA Cup victory.
