Jonathan Liew writes sympathetically about Harry Maguire and the value of his forehead to England (Familiar faces and vibes: tournament life is a better fit for Harry Maguire, 29 November), but I hope Harry is following the evidence of the dangers of heading as he bravely uses that forehead in attack and defence (Scottish footballers to be banned from heading ball before and after matches, 28 November).

• I can beat John O’Dwyer’s record regarding the calculator that he was given in 1980 and is still using (Letters, 23 November). I bought my Commodore calculator in October 1974 as a fresher, and it is still in use pretty much every day.
