A campaign has been launched to have Geoffrey Boycott knighted after an investigation claimed he was wrongly convicted of domestic abuse.
The former Yorkshire and England cricketer has been persistently overlooked by the honours system since he was found guilty in a French court of hitting his then girlfriend Margaret Moore in 1998.
But it was reported today by the Telegraph that Miss Moore may have slipped on a marble floor and hit her head accidentally. She reportedly stands by her claim that she was assaulted.
