WRITE STUFF.

Byline: EDITED BY RORY SMITH

I SERIOUSLY think Audley Harrison will become heavyweight champion of the world. I saw his fight last week and feel he's put his errors behind him and will go on to unify the division and be a true British legend. But why do I seem to be the only one who thinks this?

Dean Sawyer, Orpington

RS says: Because it's a ridiculous thing to think. He's not even good enough for a heavyweight division with less talent than the Big Brother house.

WATCHING the Paralympics is watching the true Olympians. There'll be no million-pound photoshoots, no bus parades and most will be back in some tatty training centre or third-class swimming baths, soon forgotten by the commercial driving forces behind the 2012 Games.

Sydney Vaughan, Birmingham

RS says: Which is a tragedy, because we're good at them. The fact the BBC haven't even got them on a proper channel is shameful.

SHOULDN'T the 2012 London Games be known as the 27th Olympiad, not the 30th? There have only been 26 in the modern era, as none were held in 1916, 1940 and 1944.

TL Pennington, Runcorn

RS says: Ooh, I love trivia. It's apparently because an Olympiad starts four years before the Games are meant to happen, whether they do or not. I'm here to help.

WHERE do you get Ronaldo being the best player in the world from? Before the Euros he was going to do what Platini did in 1984 but he didn't quite manage it.

John Quinn, Manchester

RS says: Memo from Sky. Apparently we have to call him that. He changed his name by deed poll to "Cristiano Ronaldo, the best player in the world (TM)".

HEAVEN help any club that ends up with Mike Ashley as its owner. Secretly plotting to sell every player while sitting in his Newcastle shirt pretending to be a real fan. And then we see him in a Manhattan bar downing Cristal champagne. A man of the people? I don't think so.

Mick Dwyer, Havant

RS says: Football fans are brilliant. Foreigner with dodgy cash and record of human rights abuses or someone who won't waste their money on overpriced players? Foreigner, every time.

-MY son was criticised last week for wearing a teatowel on his head at Eastlands last week on TV. I should point out he always wears that! Seriously though, we all need someone to act the goat sometimes - there'd be no newspapers otherwise.

Brian Coe, Manchester

RS says: Brian, rest assured that we at the Sunday Mirror thought it was a strong, bold look - a real statement for the Manchester autumn collection.
