In July 2011, at just 39 years of age, Paul was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. A tremendous blow for him, his wife and their two young children, he was still determined to fulfil a wish he’d had for years, to carry the Olympic Torch on its journey around the country. Having achieved that, Paul enthusiastically recorded his life story, making a short film for his children, so they could remember him as he wanted to be remembered.
