    Cricket star Andrew Flintoff was forced to dive for cover by a rocket attack warning on a visit to Afghanistan.

    He told the Daily Mirror he first thought it was "a wind-up" when the alarm sounded in a forces dining room, but then taking cover had been "scary".

    Ex-footballer Gary Lineker and Flintoff presented a Mirror Pride of Britain award to UK medics in Afghanistan.

    Flintoff said the trip was a "humbling experience", meeting "some of the most impressive people I've met in my life".
