Looking beyond Euro 2016, Vardy will undergo an operation after the tournament to repair “two big cracks” in his right wrist, but says he will only be sidelined for three weeks. He is bringing out an autobiography, My Story, in October and revealed that a film charting his rags-to-riches tale is slated for release in 2017. “It’s happening,” he said. “It’s out in 2017, from what I’ve been told. I think they’re just getting all the actors sorted.” In response to a question about who will play him, as well as a cheeky entreaty about who might take on the role of Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger, he would only say: “I’m not at liberty to say.”
