Mike Rolls was a sports mad teenager in Australia when he contracted meningococcal septicaemia on a football trip aged 18.

Overnight he was fighting for his life.

He defied doctors' expectations and survived to become an inspirational speaker & golfer.

Mike's message of letting go of the things you don't need is derived from his decision to remove his troublesome second leg and become a double amputee.

He talks to Kathryn Ryan about how his toughest choice became the best decision he ever made, which he explores in his new book, 'Ditch the Dead Weight'.
