Jason Statham was born in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, on the 26th of July, 1967. He is the only child of his parents; Eileen who worked as a dancer, and Barry Statham who did all kinds of menial jobs.

The young lad was famously amongst the England swimmers who competed at the 1990 Commonwealth Games. He is also a registered member of Britain’s National Swimming Squad.
