Sebastian Coe’s experience spans sport, business and politics. Having set 12 world records during his career, the two time Olympic Gold medallist retired from competitive athletics in 1990. He went on to become a Conservative MP and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the then leader of the Tories, William Hague. More recently, Lord Coe led the winning bid for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics and is now Chairman of the London Organising Committee for 2012.

Sebastian’s business book, The Winning Mind (working title), was published by Headline in 2009. His memoir, Running My Life was be published by Hodder to coincide with the Olympics and its aftermath.

Delighted to see a new British 800m record last night – what took you so long @elliot_levi_giles 😊 Seriously I know what it takes to run that quickly and even more so with the crazy build up over the last 12 months.  Congratulations, so well deserved 👏👏👏 #WorldIndoorTour

Delighted to be a guest on @SkyIanKingLive to talk about the role brands can play in driving women’s sport. Full of admiration for the outstanding @DrivingForce20 series @judyMurray and Rosemary Reed have produced. Watch @damekellyholmes tonight on @skysports mix at 9pm👏👏👏

A really sad start to the athletics’ year - a great coach, mentor and team mate. A massive loss to the sport ...

2021 is set to be year when “precocious talent” @JemmaReekie makes even more of a mark, says @sebcoe in today’s @ScotMailSport

Proud to have honoured these athletes in @WorldAthletics 2020 Awards. May their uncompromising attitude continue to be an inspiration to all of us who refuse to silently accept racism & may their story one day be part of our history rather than our present. Wishing you all a HNY
