Cruise Honours Sports Military Hero

Hollywood star TOM CRUISE will pay tribute to late American football player PAT TILLMAN - who lost his life fighting in Afghanistan.

Cruise will present Tillman's family with a special honour at the ESPN SPORTS AWARDS on 14 July (04).

Tillman quit his $3.6 million (GBP2 million) contract with the ARIZONA CARDINALS to join the US Army following the September 11 (01) terrorist attacks on America.

The sports hero was killed in action in the Middle East in April (04).

Cruise enthuses, "I am honoured to take part in remembering and celebrating the life of Pat Tillman, someone whose courage and integrity I respect and admire."

At the bash at Hollywood's KODAK THEATER, actor DENZEL WASHINGTON will present the 2004 ARTHUR ASHE COURAGE AWARD to Liberian-born UNICEF Ambassador GEORGE WEAH.
