60 seconds with a Tottenham legend
Eurosport spent 60 seconds with one of Spurs' 1961 double winners Cliff Jones to find that he'd rather advertise golf gear than glucose.
Who is your sporting hero?
Stanley Matthews. As a young player, talking to him was amazing for me.
If you weren't a footballer, what would you be?
In my early days at Swansea, I served a five-year apprenticeship as a sheet metal worker at the Prince of Wales dry dock. My father told me I had to learn a trade, in case football didn't work out.
If your house was burning down, what possession would you save?
My schoolboy medals: I captained Swansea Boys when we beat Manchester Boys to win the English Schools title as well as the Welsh one. Unfortunately, I had to sell my Spurs double medals as I needed the money.
What's on your iPod at the moment?
Modern technology has passed me by! Frank Sinatra's my man - I listen to his tapes all the time.
What is the worst country you've ever visited?
Poland. We played Katowice in '61 and got done 5-2. It was in a mining area and was absolutely horrible.
Who are the opponents you most enjoyed beating as a player?
What was the proudest moment of your career?
At Wembley in 1961: winning the double for the first time in that century was special.
If you were to sit down for dinner with three guests, who would they be?
Gareth Edwards. Although I already have done that anyway, so does that count? He was the greatest rugby player ever, and a genuine character who has a way with words. As a boy brought up in the Fifties, Marlon Brando was sensational. He was the first of the method actors and also had political beliefs, shown when he refused to receive one of his Oscars. And Shirley Bassey - you've got to bring a female.
What is your most annoying habit?
You've got me there! You'll have to ask my wife... I know: missing two-foot putts!
If you could advertise one product what would it be?
There's a photo of me on the wall at home with the caption: 'Cliff Jones talks about energy' (pictured) - I was advertising Dextrosol glucose tablets. But if I could advertise something now, it would be TaylorMade golf clubs - since I got one of those drivers it's done wonders for my game! Added yards to my drive.
Cliff Jones has provided a foreword for coffee table book '61: The Spurs Double, written by Doug Cheeseman, Martin Cloake & Adam Powley and available from Vision Sports Publishing.
