An interesting question, Alan.
I think a lot of his attitude to 'win at all costs' has a great deal to do with, so he said, with his desire to 'win at all costs' in his battle with cancer.
No doubt, measures of intense craving and aversion at work.
kind regards,

Ben

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
