    The ink also includes an image of United's home ground 'Old Trafford', a poem and the Munich clock (a memorial to the players that died in the 1958 Munich air disaster). Even the tattooed names of his children, Bobby and Duncan, are football related. Both were named after Manchester legends, Bobby Charlton and Duncan Edwards!

    While Radcliffe regrets non of his tattoos he does admit they have caused some issues with rival clubs fans; "It has got me into some sticky situations though, especially on visits to Liverpool, where they weren't welcomed too kindly".

    Most of Radcliffe's work has been done by tattoo artist Kal Fletcher and he has every intention of getting more tattoos; "I just love tattoos, they're addictive. There's still a bit more space on my body for more, but there's time for that."
