There is something hugely inspirational about a player having a look in the mirror, deciding that things weren’t going the way that he wanted, and undergoing a transformation, in mind and in body, to turn his sporting life around.

In any walk of life, that is a difficult thing to do. Nobody really enjoys self-examination. Nobody enjoys picking out their own faults, accepting them, and then having the belligerent determination to meet the personal challenges head on, and relish the difficult task of changing the dial.
