In a related story - whatever happened to the Agony of Defeat guy, Vinko Bogataj?

Vinko Bogataj was unaware of his fame in the United States until "Wide World of Sports" tracked him down for the show's 20th anniversary.

In the ensuing years, unbeknownst to him, the fall became an iconic image in America. "He didn't have a clue he was famous," his daughter Sandra said. That changed when ABC tracked him down in Slovenia and asked him to attend a ceremony in New York to celebrate the 20th anniversary of "Wide World of Sports" in 1981.

At the gala, Bogataj received the loudest ovation among a group that included some of the best-known athletes in the world. The moment became truly surreal for Bogataj when Muhammad Ali asked for his autograph. He later met Ali several more times and became friendly with the boxing legend.

"He didn't take [Ali] seriously that he wanted an autograph, because Muhammad Ali is a really famous guy," Sandra said. "That was a special moment. Then he realized that he must be famous."

Bogataj described his unlikely journey to fame in this 1997 video interview with "Wide World of Sports."

Now 68, Bogataj lives in Lesce, Slovenia, with wife Liliana. He's an award-winning artist, and his paintings have been exhibited in Europe and the United States. The Festival Bled 2016 is currently displaying his work at Bled Castle, an 11th-century tourist destination near his hometown.
