    Slightly different tack but Julian Barnes and John Fowles, two of the more famous novelists of the last half century have been MFL graduates.

    I think we can now add Bradley Wiggins to the list. He has just won the Paris-Nice stage race, the first English win since Tom Simpson in 1967. Interviewed in French at the end he was very fluent with a nice accent and good topic relevant vocabulary although one or two dodgy past participles. Rather surreal in fact as the Dutchman who was second was interviewed in English by the French presenter and there really was little difference in his and Brad's relative fluency.
