Such debates are always interesting, to fans and journalists alike, combining as they do the problems of comparing different sports - both individual and team - over different eras. Is Murray's achievement really larger than that of footballers such as Sir Bobby Charlton (won the World Cup with England, named European footballer of the year Dan Feeney Black Jersey , still Manchester United's record scorer) or Ryan Giggs (the most decorated club footballer of all)?
What about record haul Olympians such as Sir Steve Redgrave, the rower who won golds at five successive Games, or Sir Chris Hoy, the cyclist with six golds, a silver and was also 11-time world champion? Do Sir Bradley Wiggins' successes count for more when they include victories in the velodrome at the Olympics as well as at the Tour de France? Do rowing and cycling even count when they are niche sports compared to the global popularity of tennis? Would that mean that Nick Faldo Forrest Lamp Black Jersey , who won more titles in golf than Murray has won in tennis, takes the crown, or does the fact Murray's career has been contested during the peak of the three greatest players of the game count in his favor?
Like any pub debate the arguments will rage and that's before we even consider those athletes of times long gone by, such as cricket pioneer WG Grace or Denis Compton who played cricket for England as well as winning the league and FA Cup with Arsenal. That's without taking into account those whose achievements might not be measured by silverware so much as their cultural impact, Bobby Moore and George Best among them Mike Williams Black Jersey , or the complications of nationality - take Lennox Lewis, who won Olympic gold in boxing for Canada before becoming the last undisputed heavyweight champion of the world as a Briton.
There's plenty to consider as to who is the greatest of all time. Murray might be the greatest British sportsman who ever lived - what's not in dispute is that he has been the greatest this year. But who, of the athletes still active, could overtake him next year and beyond?
The greatest darts player of all time - and yes, once and for all Uchenna Nwosu Black Jersey , it is a sport - Phil "the Power" Taylor is still competing at the age of 56 and won this year's inaugural PDC Champions League of Darts, adding another trophy to his creaking trophy cabinet. While his glory days were undoubtedly his eight consecutive World Championships to 2002, he has won that title 16 times in all and is currently ranked fourth in the world. A return to the summit would be arguably a greater achievement than even Murray's.
The Mercedes driver goes into the final Grand Prix of the season in Abu Dhabi this weekend still in the hunt for what would be his third Formula 1 championship in a row and a fourth in total, which would make him the most successful British driver. Another win, either against all odds this season Derwin James Black Jersey , or next year, would rival Murray.
The Northern Irishman has described his performance in the majors this season as disappointing but his career, at the age of 27, has already included four major wins and being world No.1 for 95 weeks. Currently, world No.2 McIlroy has Australia's Jason Day in his sights but much will rest on his performance with his new clubs next season now current sponsors Nike have pulled out of the sport. Time is on McIlroy's side Joey Bosa Black Jersey , though, with the golfer's career likely to last longer than Murray's.
The man who made everyone do the Mobot back at London 2012 had another stellar summer this year, retaining his Olympic titles in both the 5,000-meter and 10,000-meter events. In doing so he became the most decorated athlete in British Olympic history but he might not be done yet. While he has said he will end his track career after next year's World Championships Melvin Gordon Black Jersey , he has not ruled out running the marathon at Tokyo 2020 when he will be 37 years old.
The much maligned Manchester United and England skipper has won everything in the domestic game - finally adding an FA Cup at the end of last season - and the Champions League. He's also recently become the record scorer for his country and is on track to become the holder of most caps for an outfield player, while he is only a handful of goals away from becoming the record scorer for his club. Rooney has long been described as past it but another trophy for his club or -leading England to the World Cup title in Russia in two years' time would surely put his legacy beyond doubt.
UEFA President Michel Platini said the 2022 FIFA World Cup will not be staged in the summer in Qatar due to the -unbearable heat, the Frenchman said Tuesday in Beijing at the Chinese Soccer Development Forum.
The FIFA decision will definitely impact the Winter Olympic Games, for which Beijing is jointly bidding with Zhang-jiakou, Hebei Province.
