Regarded as one of Britain’s greatest-ever Olympians, Sir Steven Geoffrey Redgrave has won gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000.

He is the most successful male rower in Olympic history, and the only man to have won gold medals at five Olympic Games in an endurance sport.
