To finish the series, Eddie chats to cricketer Freddie Flintoff. Freddie recalls being into cricket as a working class kid, playing through the pain barrier and his boxing career.

One of the World’s best-known sports promoters Eddie Hearn chats to some of the biggest names in sport, entertainment and business. This series includes in-depth interviews with Gary Lineker, Maya Jama and Virgil Van Dijk. Eddie learns about their passions, what gets them up in the morning, and how they dealt with the world grinding to halt this year.

In the last episode of the series, Eddie is joined by cricket legend Freddie Flintoff. Flintoff and Eddie talk about the impressions they had of each other before meeting, Freddie’s move into the media through Top Gear and A League Of Their Own, and his desire to coach at the highest level of cricket.
