Daley Thompson

Bruce Jenner brought home the gold for Team USA in the decathalon, arguably the hardest Olympic sport of all time, but England can boast double gold medalist and four-time record-breaking Olympian Thompson as it's own. The Nigerian and Scottish Brit is regarded as the best all-around athlete England has ever produced, and one of the greatest sportsmen in history.
