Interview with Olympic diver Greg Louganis

It is one of the Olympics' most memorable moments, for all the wrong reasons.  In 1988, the American diver Greg Louganis, hit his head on the diving board. As he bled from a head wound, Louganis knew he was secretly HIV-positive.

"When that happened I told my coach, 'That's all anybody is going to remember.  Me hitting my head on the board in the Olympics.'  Fortunately I came back and I was successful."

LISTEN to my interview with Louganis on the BBC World Service's Sporting Witness as he reflects on that moment, 24 years later.
