Francis Morgan Ayodélé Thompson, CBE (born 30 July 1958), known as Daley Thompson, is a British former decathlete. He won the decathlon gold medal at the Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984, and broke the world record for the event four times.
With four world records, two Olympic gold medals, three Commonwealth titles, and wins in the World and European Championships, Thompson is considered by many to be one of the greatest decathletes of all time. Robert Chalmers described him as "the greatest all-round athlete this country [United Kingdom] has ever produced."

All-star in two sports.
A real freak of nature.
Unfortunately an injury ended his playing career too early.
