Football: Robbie Savage 

One of football's most colourful characters Robbie is famous for his no nonsense approach on the field and at the time of writing is the record holder of most Premier League yellow cards with 89. He is quickly becoming one of Britain's favourite media pundits off the pitch and won a Sony DAB Rising Star Award for his work on the BBC Radio 5 Live 6-0-6 programme.


We spoke with Robbie at the Celebrity Karting event he competed in, which was held at the Autosport International Show at the NEC. The race was in honour of Dan Wheldon and raised funds for the Alzheimer's Society

Robbie shared a fantastic memory in support of our work with older people with dementia, choosing the favourite moment of his career -

"The stadium was packed that night with 72,500 fans. Italy had all their stars playing, Del Piero, Gattuso, Nesta & Buffon and the atmosphere was electric. Lining up before the game, the national anthem made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. We had the whole country behind us that night. We all played like dragons that night, beating them 2-1"

Robbie's honest and forthright opinions can be read weekly in his Daily Mirror column as well as being heard in his regular appearances on both TV and Radio for the BBC. Robbie is an ambassador for the Alzheimer's Society, raising the profile of dementia and championing the charity at events across the UK
