In the last few weeks, I have made some big declarations.
To become a junior soccer team manager, I have had to sign my life away as never, ever, ever having anything to do with child sex offences, offenders, offers or anything. Otherwise I can be carted off to chokey for so much as showing up to training.
To attain a cycling license I have had to declare myself free of performance-enhancing drugs and make it plain that The Authorities can test me for them anytime, anywhere.
Long story short, I am completely, utterly clean on both counts. Always have been. Now it’s official.
