    Could have added Warne to the list but I don't believe I actually spoke to him.

    Not sure these are the most famous people I've ever met but I rate cricketers highly I guess. Best of that lot obviously the ATGs Murali (had a brief pleasant chat) and Sanga (had a long drunken chat where I no doubt annoyed the **** out of him)

    I got an autograph off Jonah Lomu in the middle of Eden Park which I guess is about as good as it gets for rugby union?

    Struggling to think of much from the entertainment world. Politically, I've met John Key several times but is he really famous?
    Who's the tallest famous person you've ever met?

    I saw Princess Anne again today (unveiling a monument on Plymouth Hoe). No flicker of recognition on her part from our meeting and handshake in 1973.

    Have bowled to Makhaya Ntini. Bugger got bowled by a 10 year old iirc.

    Andrew Hall was a legend - made my then-pre-teen sister's day by winking at her at a signing session.

    Also chatted to Collingwood and KP as we were messing around on the banks at a warm-up game and hit our ball to them "by accident." KP couldn't throw the ball straight, which teenage us found greatly amusing.

    Outside of sports, I guess the biggest was SA's biggest shock jock radio host, Gareth Cliff, whose radio station/podcast conglomerate had invited us to cover an event. Although I've also met a plethora of big tech CEOs due to journalisming.

    I would like to meet Mohammed Irfan. But the only famous person I met was Danni Minogue. Missed the chance to meet Chris Broad when he came to my kids primary to talk about cricket.

    Among cricketers: Jadeja, Pandya, Sreesanth, Munaf Patel, Laxman, Azhar.

    Tallest person is the Great Khali

    Have met a bunch of BJP politicians.

    BJP Politicians? Did they know your location?

    I have met the Undertaker, HHH, Yokozuna and Razor Ramon too....Undertaker was an ahole. Wouldnt sign our autographs and I thought he was in character until he asked Henry Godwin if he wanted to buy some Pyajamas. This was in Bombay in the mid 90s
