Each week on OTB Sports Radio we’ll be bringing you the very best of Off The Ball – this week on OTB Gold we’ve got...
1: Lance Armstrong interview
"Ger, are you a complete rookie? ... Are you out of your mind?"
Lance spoke to Ger back in 2016 as he was set to appear in Dublin for the 'One Zero' conference. The pair touched on subjects such as dealing with the media since his doping was revealed, his treatment of Paul Kimmage, and whether he recognizes himself in reports about him in recent years during an extremely tense interview...

5: Centaur – The incredible story of Declan Murphy
"I went, at one stage, 12 days without sleeping. I wouldn't close the curtains because I wanted to see the sunrise every day. That gave me a new sense of hope"
Declan Murphy's story is absolutely extraordinary. His recovery from a horrific horse racing accident was assumed impossible. He did manage to recover after a brutal recovery spell. He told Off The Ball that writing the book which details the accident and recovery was even more difficult than living through the events.
