Few South Africans have aroused greater emotions than Sam Ramsamy. He was born in a working class Indian settlement in Durban. He trained as a teacher and made his name as a successful coach in both swimming and professional football. Then, aged 34, pursued by the security police, he fled into exile.

From his flat in London, he mobilized the international isolation of South African sport as protest against apartheid. This made him a hero of the liberation struggle for many black South Africans and Public Enemy Number One for many white South Africans.

This is the story of a man who has dedicated his life to the cause of securing equal opportunities in sport for all South Africans.
