It must have made the conversation rather awkward.

Jockey turned television horse racing pundit Willie Carson may have been a giant in his sport, but he was left in the shade when he bumped into two towering England cricketers at a fundraising dinner at Lord’s.

Carson, 68, who is just 5ft tall, was dwarfed by 6ft 7in Steve Finn and 6ft 6in Stuart Broad.

The event was in aid of The Broad Appeal, which was set up by Stuart and his family to raise money for sufferers of Motor Neurone Disease after his mother Miche died from the condition last year.
