Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish?
Draught in the castle of Limassol, steak well-done with a jacket potato.

What did you have for breakfast?
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so it has to be rich. My breakfast consists mainly of fruit and cereal.

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
I cannot say I like one over the other, they both have their ups and downs. A perfect night out would be with good friends.

Best book ever read?
The books I read have to do with exercise and in general the physiology of the human body. I don’t read fiction.

Favourite film of all time?
The Prestige. It is different and very smart movie that keeps you interested from the beginning till the end.

Best holiday ever taken? What’s your dream trip?
The most beautiful place I visited for holidays was the island of Skiathos. It is a small island that combines the beauty of the mountains and the sea. I would like to travel to the Maldives.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
I listen to all kinds of music, Greek and foreign depending always on my mood.

What is always in your fridge?
Fruit

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
In a place just outside the city but with easy access to it.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Bruce Lee, because so much has been said about him as a person, actor but also athlete of the martial arts.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
Spend time having fun with the people I love.

What is your greatest fear?
Myself and not do things that I will later regret.

Tell me a joke… a joke
