HE may be one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and a former Olympian ó but Evander Holyfield is not recognised by all his countrymen.
The American boxer, 49, was among a number of tourists interviewed by broadcaster NBC for their Today Programme to give their opinion on the Opening Ceremony.
But the TV news station did not acknowledge Holyfield, with the bronze-medal winner at the 1984 Los Angeles Games and former undisputed heavyweight champion confirming the story on his Twitter page.
He wrote: "The @todayshow did interview me yesterday and ur right they didnít mention who I was.
"Look, the @todayshow did a good job. It was hard to recognize me with the baseball cap. This could happen to any reporter. LOL!!"
