Usain Bolt, Helen Skelton, Tom Kerridge and Rubylux join us for Breakfast!

2 hours, 59 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 20 September 2013

Olympic legend Usain Bolt joins us for Breakfast. Tom Kerridge will cook up a treat for him, Helen Skelton is popping in too and Rubylux are playing live!

Faster than a speeding bullet, Usain Bolt is coming into the studio for a spot of healthy breakfast and a cup of peppermint tea, as he tells us about his new autobiography, 'Catch Me If You Can'!

The sprinting superstar is quite literally the fastest person ever. He is the first man to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records, and set the record for the 4x100 metres relay for Jamaica. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events, the first man to win six Olympic gold medals in sprinting, and an eight-time World champion. Not bad, but let's get to the important stuff; how does he like his eggs in the morning?!

  • Pause for Thought

    From The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu.

    “Are you worried about the future?” So asked eight year old Nana, in a letter when she heard about my life-threatening illness.
    What do you say when you have had two major operations and Salmonella poisoning?
    Sentamu, are you worried about the future? No.
    Concerned? Yes.
    Shaken but not stirred.
    Worrying about the future will not make it better or certain.
    I’ve learnt the cure to worrying lies in focussing on the now and letting God worry about the future he has planned for me, for you, for us all.

    This isn’t idle faith – getting out our spiritual binoculars to see what sort of a future God is sending in our direction. But rather keeping focussed and doing our best the task that is in front of us. And acknowledging that the challenge in front of us is no greater than the power in us, around us, above us, and behind us. It’s living as if tomorrow is already here.

    I remind myself constantly not to spend too much time looking ahead to what may be coming around the corner. But rather enjoying the now in company with others and making the most of what each day offers to me, to you, to us all.

    It’s a pity that often it’s only in times of ill-health, misfortune or in changing our routine that we focus on the present and take each day at a time.
    “Are you worried about the future?”
    Learn to be more loving, faithful, trusting and stick at it. This capacity for stickability has helped me, amidst many trials and tribulations, to discover a wonderful gift. The gift of Christian hope.

    This isn’t “believing what you know isn’t true: gritting your teeth and bearing it. It is rather the patience and the readiness to adventure with the One who makes the impossible possible. For our generous God is get-at-able.
    So let nothing frighten you!
