Alex Zanardi – the ultimate gentleman racer. Always polite and measured – returned to F1 after a fantastic CART career.
Horrific crash 2001 – multiple cardiac arrests, read the last rites, both legs amputated.
Took up handcycling:
2 golds and 1 silver – London 2012
2 golds and 1 silver – Rio 2016
Awesome tribute from Alex Brooker (The Last Leg):
