Who would you love to have dinner with and where?
‘I would honestly like to have a chat with Michael Jordan, seriously, because he is probably one of my greatest role models when it comes to peak performance. Meaning, not only that he is good – he was good at what he did, but even on a bad game he found a way. Even when he didn't play his greatest game, he still found a way, and I love his quote: “I never looked at the consequences of missing a big shot”.'
Last meal on the planet?
‘I think I would just accept it and be grateful for whatever was available at that time. I honestly think so. I would never have a desire to have anything special, I don't think.
‘I guess that would be the time to reflect. I am very much a future-driven guy but it's very very important to reflect, and I hope I would reflect on the abundance that we all have. So even if I am sitting here with just a glass of water, that would be my last meal – to be grateful for those drops and whatever has preceded it.'
