  1. Officially, they aren't paid at all. All voluntary, graceful amateur game (that's incredibly violent) and all that Reality is they get expenses, grants and sponsors delivered to them if they're top level.

    Wouldn't think a UK obit is 100% nailed on, should it hit a heavy news period. Was the C4 showings of an edited Late Late and his time on Granada 50 years ago enough?
