Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr Harjeet Singh returns for his monthly show on sports medicine and orthopaedics. This month, he focuses on athletics.

Traditionally, the title of the World's Greatest Athlete has been given to the person who wins the Olympic decathlon - which combines foot races, throwing and jumping disciplines. Is that still accurate in modern sports?
