England cricketer Andrew Flintoff is to guest edit next week’s special Ashes issue of free weekly magazine Sport.
For one week only Sport will go on sale on Wednesday instead of Friday to coincide with the start of the test series against Australia in Cardiff.
Flintoff, the star member of the 2005 Ashes-winning squad, worked closely with the staff as well as setting his own questions for the captains of each of the teams.
He said: “In my career I have experienced every side of the press – good things and bad things – so I was happy to be Guest Editor of Sport this week so I could make a magazine the way I like it. I asked for a feature on my team-mates, the fans, my darts idol Wayne Mardle and some big pictures of motorbikes and base jumping. I’m not a big reader so I like a magazine with big pictures!”
