101 cases where sport in the UK, and the rest of the world, has rubbed up against the law - whether in a court or a tribunal. Ian Hewitt looks at cases as diverse as US baseball's Joe Jackson to Eric Cantona's kung-fu attack on a fan in 1995. Many have contributed, some reluctantly, to the history of leading sports figures' encounters with the law.

Hewitt's own favourite is the upset Leicester soccer fan who sued a referee for shock suffered as a result of the official's penalty decision in the last minute of extra time in an FA Cup tie.
