Not sure if this belongs here or not, as in all possibility it was accidental. But in the run-up to the Olympics later this year, ITV Sport has just run a commercial that juxtaposes inspirational quotes from sporting greats with film clip of those greats in action.

Cycling legend Lance Armstrong is quoted on the guts and determination needed to win one Tour de France. Immediately afterwards, a star cricketer is quoted as saying "it only needs one ball"... in the context of "it only takes one ball to win a wicket". But just after Lance Armstrong, a sporting legend who, after testicular cancer, famously DOES only have one ball... I'm almost sure this juxtaposiotion was not intentional...
