King all smiles on Lord’s visit

OUTGOING governor of the Bank of England Sir Mervyn King had no sooner finished unveiling the new Churchill banknote, before turning his attention to his other role as president of charity campaign Chance to Shine.

King visited Lord’s cricket ground on Friday to celebrate the two millionth child to receive coaching via the charity. Speaking to England cricket heros like Graeme Swann and Steven Finn, King quoted JF Kennedy’s famous declaration: “It’s not what schools can do for cricket, but what cricket can do for schools.”

No prizes for guessing what his retirement hobby will be, then.
