Vincent Hogan: Flintoff did not shed any real light on dark world

Freddie Flintoff seems a likeable sort, but I can't say if he's depressive or just someone who finds public expectation a private tyranny.
After watching the BBC's 'Hidden Side of Sport' on Wednesday night, you get the feeling he's not quite sure himself. Freddie, essentially, stepped into a confessional for this documentary, inviting a collection of other former sports stars to join him on the journey.
The result was a compelling 50-minute scrapbook of personal stories of distress, utterly compelling in candour, if a little less so in direction.
