DESPITE a hamstring injury, Pompey legend Alan Knight got on his bike for a cancer charity.

The former goalkeeper rode five miles on an exercise bike at Asda in Waterlooville to help raise money for the Everyman charity, which aims to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancers.

Staff had been taking it in 20-minute turns on the bike in the store’s foyer since Wednesday to hit a 500-mile target, and get £500 in donations from shoppers by Saturday.

Lynn Hyett, the store’s community colleague, said: ‘Alan did his 20 minutes despite his hamstring problem. He still did it, which was great of him.

‘We’ve had fantastic support from the public and it’s been a lot of fun.’

Everyman has been chosen by Asda as its national charity for the year.
