In 1995 he retired due to injuries and then became a television presenter, and he will be particularly remembered for fronting the UK edition of Gladiators alongside Ulrika Jonsson in the mid-1990s. He now hosts Deal or No Deal Nigeria, airing on M-Net Africa.
As an ambassador for Hearts and Minds, he will help to promote the charity and its activities, and will attend many of the fund-raising events including the Viva Las Vegas Ball in November and a surprise event, still to be announced!
