Freddie Flintoff, 43, has been in the limelight since his successful cricket career.

Following his Test match debut in 1998 for England against South Africa at Trent Bridge in Nottinghamshire, he went onto become an integral player for England, serving as both captain and vice-captain of the team.
By 2002, Freddie was a strong cricketer and was often compared to another of England’s greatest cricket players, Ian Botham.
In 2005, Freddie played a Second Test match against Australia and broke Ian’s 1981 record of six sixes in an Ashes Test Match with five in the first innings, and a further four in the second innings.
He scored 141 runs in the game in total.
For his achievements that year, he was awarded BBC Sports Personality of the year 2005 and MCC Spirit of the Cricket Award 2005.
A year later, in the New Year’s Honours List, Freddie was appointed an MBE by the Queen.
However, Freddie suffered regular injuries throughout his international career often due to his heavy frame and bowling action.
Between 2007 and 2009, he played in only 13 of England’s 36 Test matches.
