Hi John. I've heard you speak about the QI fact-finding process of going through books and literature looking for interesting nuggets of trivia. But can you tell me how you validate the source? Also; how many times have you got it wrong, and can you give some examples?

Long-distance cyclists don't need muscular, powerful legs, but slim builds and good stamina. Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggin's legs, for example, look like he might be blown away by a light breeze.

It's track cyclists, who need power to sprint at 50mph for seconds to minutes at a time, tend to have bulky thighs and calves.
