Outside of the office

Thomas plays golf (quite badly), he thoroughly enjoys watching his beloved Arsenal FC, attending youth football and basketball games, and relaxes by carrying out a spot of DIY when he is able to fit it in. He also makes fairly regular visits to areas of interest in Scandinavia.
