The alleged racial abuse aimed Indian players at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Sunday is just the latest incident in Australia’s various sporting codes.

These kids broke free from their more famous fathers’ rules to become a acrobatic rock ‘n’ roll dancer and a Serie A footballer.

While others reigned football federations in terror, just like daddy did.
