He was the greatest batsman of his generation and, as captain, possessed the sharpest tactical mind in the game.
Bursting onto the scene in 2004 with a Test century on debut, Michael Clarke was Australian cricket's golden boy.
Clarke's rollercoaster four-year reign as Test captain was marked as much by bravery as brilliance - a 5-0 whitewash of England in 2013-14, the 2015 World Cup triumph, and a ten-hour unbeaten 161, batting with a broken shoulder to lead Australia back to the #1 world ranking in 2014.
Yet Michael Clarke also sparked fiercer debate than any other Australian sports star.
For a decade his personal life, career fortunes and controversies - real or imagined - were splashed across front pages. Was he simply a hard-working, western suburbs kid living every Aussie boy's dream? Or a 21st century cricketer mired in all the trappings of celebrity?
Clarke's enigma deepened but he kept his mouth shut and his dignity intact, knowing the chance to tell his extraordinary story would finally come. And now it has.
