We know the images of sports well, through awe-inspiring photographs and embedded-in-our-brains highlights.
This artist, though, is looking at the athletes and coaches we love a little differently. Well, OK, a lot differently. With some of the most minimalist sports portraits you'll find, Instagram user @lessonsinsport allows us to see big stars in quite a different light.
