Table tennis

He represented Great Britain at the 1988 Seoul Olympics in the doubles event with Des Douglas and won 3 Commonwealth Table Tennis Championship gold medals in 1989 . Andrew retired from competitive table tennis after the 1994 European Championships.

Sports agent

While training at Lilleshall Hall in his youth, Andrew met young footballer Sol Campbell, with whom he struck up a friendship.

After retiring from table tennis, Andrew wanted to get into show business, but ended up becoming an agent, representing acting clients including Martine McCutcheon.

Andrew has since represented Jermaine Pennant, David Ginola, Frank Bruno, Jay Bothroyd and Jermain Defoe. His TV and film clients include Nathalie Emmanuel, Sarah-Jane Mee, and Natalie Sawyer.

In September 2016, in a deal with football agency Platinum One Group, Sky Andrew moved his football business across.
