Colin McCallum, head coach, said: “Neil is the voice of international judo, commentating at the Olympics and all major events.

“He is unbelievably busy and teaches judo all over the world.

“He decided to pop into our little club at Marham as part of his ‘expect the unexpected tour’ where he turns up unannounced to run a session and meet the players. To say this was a shock is an understatement!
