At Saturday night’s gala and dinner celebrating his 35th year of knighthood, Barbados’ lone living National Hero Sir Garfield Sobers paid tribute to former Manchester United player Dwight Yorke for being a fine example for Caribbean footballers.Earlier at the Knight To Remember affair, Yorke, who is a close friend of West Indies superstar Brian Lara, had made a significant contribution to the auction raising funds for a foundation to help needy causes under Sir Garry’s name.Yorke had missed out on an autographed photo of four of the world’s greatest batsmen Sir Garry, Lara, Sir Vivian Richards and Sunil Gavaskar. However, Yorke was so happy to gain two others  – one with Sir Garry and Sir Viv, and another with Sir Garry and Lara – that the affable sportsman added an additional $1 000 to the $3 000 he had offered for the photos.Above, Yorke posing with the virtual stars and the real heroes of Caribbean cricket at the Garfield Sobers Sporting Complex.
