A true gentleman always holds the door for a lady...

...and today that gent was me! The lady in question was no other than the 2004 Olympic gold medalist Dame Kelly Holmes. She paid a visit to a sports academy here in London and we were walking around the different fields, chatting to the kids, etc. We then headed inside and my moment of glory came; I swiftly held the door and she glided past me without a word of thanks - just the way it should be - one shouldn't have to thank one's the servants all the time.

It felt really good to hold the door for a proper lady!

Picture: she retired from professional athletics in December 2006, so you would have thought she doesn't have to keep up with the training anymore, huh?
