Some might surprise you…
1. 100m speed
The speedster clocked 10.71 for the 100 metres with a strong argument to be England’s quickest wide man ever.
2. Partner in crime
He is often cheered on by his stunning wife Sophie Snook, whom he married in July 2017.
Sophie shares her husband’s love of keeping fit and staying active and has built a successful career as a personal trainer under the brand @Girlsontopoffitness.

3. Strange rumour
May had to respond to the rather strange rumour that he used to think he was possessed by a chicken.
The story emerged after Danny Care said: “Jonny is — in the nicest possible way — very strange. A few years back, he used to think he was possessed by a chicken!
He used to go around clucking and thought this chicken demon was inside him. I don’t know whether it was an act or true — with Jonny you just never know.”
The England speedster has since gone onto respond to the story.
“It’s a bit silly isn’t it? I don’t think at any stage that has happened,” revealed May to the Guardian, blushing ever so slightly.
