Its 75 years since Scottish athlete Eric Liddell died in an internment camp in Japanese occupied China, aged 43.

 

Born in China to christian missionaries and a devout christian himself, he refused to race on Sundays, and in 1925 returned to China as a missionary.

See the source image

 

When Allan Wells won the 100m Gold at the 1980 Olympics, he dedicated the victory to Liddell.
