The dancing cleric tackled Brazilian athlete, Vanderlei de Lima, at the 2004 Athens Olympics, as a protest, scuppering his chances of winning a gold medal in the marathon.

The Irish Daily Star reports a film script by Loyzo Smolinsky, based on the sporting highs and lows of the athlete, has the working title ‘A Marathon of a Lifetime’.

Earlier this year, de Lima refused to meet Horan, who travelled to Brazil to apologise to him in person.
