Rob Hughes

Rob Hughes wrote a column about football for the International Herald Tribune for more than 30 years, as well as writing for The Times for a decade and The Sunday Times for 25 years. In 1990 Brazil awarded him its highest civilian decoration, the Order of the Southern Cross, saying he belonged to ‘those few writers who reach beyond the mere descriptive to find in sports a deeper expression of individual and national aspirations’. He currently writes a column for the the Straits Times, and you can find his most recent columns here.
