Elton John reworked his classic track, 'Your Song', with operatic star Alessandro Safina providing spine-tingling additional vocals especially for the very first Sport Relief. The video featured a number of sporting heroes including David Beckham, Steve Redgrave and Denise Lewis. 'Your Song' reached Number 4 in the music charts.
A fabulous night of TV on the BBC included A Question of Sport Relief featuring the likes of Gary Linekar and Frank Skinner, and the one-off resurrection of the popular BBC series Superstars in which sporting champions including Sir Steve Redgrave, Chris Boardman, Dwight Yorke, Martin Offiah and Austin Healey competed for the covered Telegraph Trophy.
An amazing £14.4 million was raised, and to top it off, over 120,000 Sport Relief Medals were sold!
