The less said about this Express photograph, the better.

It shows Eddie the Eagle Edwards, who was the first competitor to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping.

He was rather a failure, which curiously endeared him to the British public.

Here he is in 1989 signing a ‘special’ autograph for fan Lizzie Cornwall, 22, of Burwash.
