Exclusive: Sven-Goran Eriksson's job on the side

Sven-Goran Eriksson is a man of many talents - just ask Faria Alam. Where that 8-inch candle ended up I'll never know.

On Tuesday, the ex-England manager named his provisional Ivory Coast World Cup squad before darting back to England to give David Cameron and Samantha a lift into Downing Street for the first time as prime minister and 'first lady'.

This may have had something to do John Mason, Transport for London's head of taxi regulation, who said in March that while cabbies are among the capital's great characters, there is "always room for improvement".

"Perhaps it is good sometimes to keep your mouth shut if you sense vibes from the customer that perhaps they are having a bad day," the Daily Telegraph reported him as saying.

It makes sense - Sven's lack of passion, inability to speak about anything in detail and calm demeanour make him perfect for the job.

I wonder if he had given Gordon Brown a lift in the other direction?
