Chris Eubank, international man of mystery

...Despite his quirks, [Chris] Eubank remains one of the most endearing of sports personalities, if a sometimes infuriating one. A call to his mobile recently brought the response: "Hello, Christopher here."

"Hi Chris, where are you?"

"I'm in Europe."

"We're all in Europe, Chris. Whereabouts?"

"I couldn't pothibly thay," he replied. And hung up.
