For me it has to be Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr

Undoubtedly the greatest ever sporting icon in my lifetime

Agreed.

What a name. (X2)
What a nickname. (X2)
What a man to stand up to injustice and racism.

The answer is, of course, Ali, but Botham, Benaud, Sobers, Cruyff, Best, Jordan, Borg etc all deserve an honourable mention. Me, I've got a soft spot for the Brownlee brothers.

Federer tops the tennis list by miles mun if we are just talking greatest at the sport. Ali only comes second to Alan Curtis because we are talking the whole package.

Pele also has to challenge Ali. In fact I'd say they are absolutely on a par.

Otherwise it's just a game of 'what's your favourite sport'

That is true. He stood up to racism.

“A black man should be killed if he’s messing with a white woman,” he said. And it was the same for a white man making a pass at a black woman. “We’ll kill anybody who tries to mess around with our women.” But suppose the black woman wanted to be with the white man, the interviewer asked. “Then she dies,” Ali answered. “Kill her too.”

Great boxer, great character but he was just a pound shop Diane Abbott.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

Ali, not just for what he did in the ring.

But then there's Jack Nicklaus until Tiger Woods came along.

Usain Bolt's record will take some beating.

Ronaldo's record is amazing for both club(s) and country.

Not easy.

I forgot Gareth, dammit.
If we're talking sublime artistry, class and an aesthetic quality to go with technique, speed, stamina, skill and all the rest of it, you can narrow the field a bit. When I mentioned the Brownlees I was mainly thinking about fraternity and guts. Leon comes into that category for his selflessness and industry for the team. There should have been a couple of categories:
1) pure artistry (Federer and Borg, Sobers and Benaud, Best, Cruyff and Pele plus Ronaldo perhaps)
2) Bravery, team ethic, odds-defying will power etc (Botham, Leon, Bobby Moore, several Welsh rugby players)
3) sportsmen and women you just loved to watch, even if they had a limitation or two perhaps (Giggs. Ronnie o'Sullivan ,Shane Warne and so forth)
