Have you ever flashed at a zooter in the corridor of uncertainty while on a sticky dog? Maybe you've seen someone hit a mulligan out of the screws to grab a birdie at Amen Corner? The world of sport has its own language, wonderfully rich in strange words and phrases, whose origins often stretch back centuries. Veteran BBC presenter and football legend Bob Wilson has written this brilliant illustrated guide to the fascinating true meanings, heritage and evolution of the great sporting terms we use today.
