Quiz 30 - Sporting Adverts 

As we all know footballers (and other top sportspeople) can hardly make ends meet from what they earn from sport so its not unusual to see them turn to advertising to earn that extra ¬£ or two. 
Have any of those ads stuck in your mind?.

As always some of the questions are easy, some difficult but overall I would give it a pass mark of 5 out of 10.

More interesting I guess would be did you ever buy any
 of the products because of the ads?
