8. Golf

He has improved on his 18 handicap remarkably since his retirement in 2014. The former England and Barbarians man now plays off a handy 10.

9. Nickname

Mike’s sometimes nickname is “The Fridge” due to his sizeable 6ft 2inch bulk.

10. Horse racing

Monbeg Dude was bought accidentally by Tindall when he bid £12,000 for him at Cheltenham in 2010 (thinking someone would out bid him). Tindall managed to convince fellow players at the time James Simpson-Daniel and Nicky Robinson to contribute.

Monbeg Dude won the Welsh Grand National, a grade 1 win at Cheltenham and came third in the Grand National in 2015. Here is the steeplechaser winning the 2012 Welsh National.
