  JK Rowling voted one of greatest Brits ever
Updated 21 August 2002, 21.25
J.K. Rowling is famous for her Harry Potter books but is she the best Briton?
JK Rowling and David Beckham have made it onto the list of the top one hundred greatest Britons of all time.

But who is the greatest Briton ever?

The BBC asked more than 30,000 people that question and they're answers included - Tony Blair, King Arthur, David Attenborough, Guy Fawkes, Paul McCartney, J.R.R. Tolkien, William Shakespeare and Robbie Williams.

Would Sir Redgrave get your medal?
