Like father, like son: Mick Schumacher and the family trade

After Mick Schumacher became Formula 3 European champion, we take a look at sportspeople who have followed in their parents' footsteps.

Mick Schumacher, the son of seven-time Formula One world champion Michael, won the Formula 3 European title on Saturday. The 19-year-old finished second in race two at the season finale in Hockenheim to open up an insurmountable lead over closest challenger Dan Ticktum with a race to spare. Mick's triumph was just the latest indication that he could follow in his father's footsteps by making it all the way to Formula One, which was dominated by Schumacher Sr in the early 2000s.

Peter Schmeichel is regarded as one of the Premier League's greatest goalkeepers after winning five league titles, three FA Cups and the 1999 Champions League with Manchester United. A tough act for Kasper (in picture) to follow, and he spent the bulk of his early career in the lower leagues — but he finally played his part in a story to rival any of his dad's successes when he helped Leicester City to a barely believable Premier League title in 2016.

One the youngest players to ever win rugby league's Challenge Cup, the other was the youngest player in English rugby union history when he made his debut. Both Andy and Owen Farrell were 17 when they each entered the record books, with union star Farrell junior currently well on the way to emulating his father's greatness in the 13-man code. Regarded as one of union's best kickers, it is a Farrell family trait, given Andy's 3,000+ points haul in 13 years with Wigan Warriors. [Getty Images] Photo: Getty Images
