Born in Milan, but an Anglophile through and through, Frankie Dettori is one of his adopted country's best-loved jockeys.
Champion Jockey three times and with more than 500 race victories under his belt, Lester Piggott considers Dettori the best flat race rider of his generation.
The Italian probably cemented that status when he famously won all seven races at the British Champions' Day at Ascot in 1996, ensuring his trademark victory celebration – a joyous leap from the saddle - was honed to perfection by the end of that historic day.
It's not all been sweetness and light for Dettori. Constant battles with his weight led him to admit using all manner of medications to help him keep the pounds off – substances since banned by the racing authorities.
And in 2012, he was banned from racing for six months after being found guilty of taking a prohibited substance (believed to be cocaine).
But he's back and racing now and remains a true legend on the flat.
