    Greatest Sporting Siblings

    Who are they?

    Top level sport, any sport at all. Factor in the sport's popularity if you so choose.

    Obvious ones would be the Williams sisters and the fighting Klitzchkos (or however you spell it).

    Any others compare with those?

    Jackie & Bobby Charlton have to be up there. Both world cup winners; the latter arguably the greatest ever English footballer and still England's leading international goalscorer & the former a properly psychotic centre-half who booted anything for over twenty years and twice took Eire to WC quarter-finals as manager.

    They only made the last 16 in 1994. Got eliminated by the Dutch IIRC.

    Yep, but they provided the tournament's best moment so it's all good

    I'm fortunate to have seen 3 of those 4 in the flesh on a regular basis.

    Given that Michael is overwhelmingly regarded as being the better of the two Laudrups, I can't even begin to imagine how good he must have been as his younger brother was pretty special.

    I've no idea why Ronald de Boer graced the SPL for 4 years (well, I do, his knees were ****ed) - he was outstanding on his game as well.

    The Charltons obviously in football. Still the only two with World Cup winning medals. Yet I'd disregard both on the fact of the club sides they played for. So the Van Der Kerkhof's obviously better.

    Chappells too. For differing sports the Comptons and Marshes too.

    Mention for the Evers-Swindell twins, gold medals in rowing at two Olympic games.

    Bit surprised no one has mentioned the Ella brothers.

    Or the Chappells for that matter.

    John and Ilsa Konrads both won Olympic gold in swimming iirc.

    The Pollocks (Graeme & Peter) probably worth a mention too, as are Zinzan & Robin Brooke.
