Born in Notting Hill, London, of Scottish and Nigerian parentage, Thompson won his first major title, gold medal at the Commonwealth Games (1978) for the decathlon. Subsequent gold medals include the Olympic Games (1980 and 1984), Commonwealth Games (1982) and World Championships (1983). Thompson won his third Commonwealth title in 1986. He became the first athlete to win Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European titles and hold a world record. In 1987 he suffered his first decathlon defeat for nine years when he finished ninth in the World Championships, and at his fourth Olympics in Seoul (1988) he finished fourth. Selected for the Commonwealth Games team for the fourth time in 1990, he withdrew due to injury. He retired in 1992 due to a persistent hamstring injury. He has been awarded the MBE (1982), the OBE (1986), and the CBE (2000).

Images are printed in their original proportions, within a white border, on a Satin Photo paper or Art Etch paper. Please note that a copyright line is included beneath the image and the dimensions listed above are for the paper size only.

The Satin Photo paper has a semi-gloss finish, ideally suited to reproductions of photographs, while the Art Etch paper has a matt textured surface that works particularly well for reproductions of drawings, etchings and some paintings.

Royal Mail and our other regular global couriers have stopped asking for signatures when delivering parcels to customers. In cases where a parcel does not fit through a letterbox, the courier will leave the item at the door, and will step aside after knocking to ensure there is a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel.

In addition, some couriers are experiencing delays at this time. We would be grateful if you could have patience with us during this challenging time.
