It's human nature to be envious or jealous of someone simply because they're in a better position than you.

World sporting icons can probably understand the brunt of this better than anyone, having to endure intense dislike from thousands of fans simply because their popularity dictates that their personal lives are more often than not published for all to see. 

However there are also those in the sporting world who do very little to help themselves.
