Hobbies in his own words:

I have always been interested and involved in team sports, playing football and cricket for school teams. I have represented King’s College Hospital in football, receiving full colours and award for outstanding services. Currently I play occasional five a side football and excel more in the social rather than the athletic aspects of the game. I also run to keep fit but this increasingly involves gentle jogging three to four times a week, and play tennis and badminton badly. Otherwise I am more of an armchair sportsman and an avid fan of Brentford football club.

My other interests are travelling and DIY. I have travelled extensively in West Africa, Europe, Far & Near East and Australasia.
