If Sky Sports had begun broadcasting in the 19th century, filling the schedule would not have been a problem. Nineteenth-century chaise-longue potatoes might have enjoyed ratting matches from the Haymarket theatre; body-building contests live from the Albert Hall - with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on his hands and knees, inspecting the competitors’ leopardskin-covered deltoids; filthy-dirty games of football that almost guaranteed the crowd the sight of a white shard of bone protruding through a woolly sock; idiosyncratic.

Many of the sports that have spread across the world, from athletics and boxing to golf and tennis, had their origins in nineteenth-century Britain. They were exported around the world by the British Empire, and Britain's influence in the world led to many of its sports being adopted in other countries. The Victorians and Sport is a highly readable account of the role sport played in both Victorian Britain and its empire. Major sports attracted mass followings and were widely reported in the press. Great sporting celebrities, such as the cricketer Dr W.G. Grace, were the best-known people in the country, and sporting rivalries provoked strong loyalties and passionate emotions. Mike Huggins provides fascinating details of individual sports and sportsmen. He also shows how sport was an important part of society and of many people's lives.
