THIS FRIDAY, VIRGIN Media One will air a documentary entitled ‘Game Over: True Lives’.
Presented by ex-Ireland and Munster rugby legend Donncha O’Callaghan, the programme will look at how sportspeople deal with life after their playing careers.
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane, a fellow Corkman, features to talk about adjusting to retirement, his day-to-day routine, fitness regime (or lack of) and family life.
“I did an interview a few years ago and some guys asked me who puts my bins out and I said ‘I’ve to put my bins out — living a normal life,” says Keane.
“I’ve offered my young fella a few bob but he won’t do it so there’s things you have to do and drive the kids to school and I’m stuck in traffic going like is this my life.”

“I like to get up early, I like to do some sort of physical exercise but I wouldn’t be going to the gym or going cycling or swimming or joining clubs or lifting weights or anything like that,” he adds.
“I think that was great, it was part of my life and I was passionate about that but I just found passion for other things now. I’ve done my time. I see people out cycling. I look at people about 20 stone out cycling and like what’s the point in you cycling. I still have that mind-set forgetting the fact that maybe they enjoy it”
