Rick Jones, who has died aged 84, became a sort of surrogate uncle for millions of children who grew up watching the BBC pre-school series Play School and Fingerbobs in the 1960s and early 1970s.
The gap from college football to the NFL is notoriously hard to bridge, but right now, as the two main men in Jacksonville lead the Jaguars to London to face Miami Dolphins, it must look particularly chasmic. The NFL’s worst team made, among their many moves for improvement this offseason, two major ones: drafting the most exciting quarterback prospect in a generation with the No1 pick and bringing in, to nurture his talents, one of the most successful head coaches in college football history.

To be fair, most of these trends are happening around the world as the global economy lurches back to life after the pandemic, triggering unexpected new bottlenecks across supply chains like a global game of whack-a-mole.
