Is he...? No he isn't. (Part 1 of....)

Just one note (I thought of this as I was working on a new exercise:) do not use "sportsman" to talk about someone (male or female) who plays a sport.

If you're speaking about sports in general, you can call someone an "athlete" (it's not just for athletics), use "player" with the name of the sport (volleyball player, tennis player, hockey player) or use the noun that goes with the sport (cyclist, jockey, runner).

"Sportman" (singular) does not exist in any dictionary that I consulted.
