By Ian Chadband BIRMINGHAM, England (Reuters) - As usual, Kim Collins -- at 41 one of track's most enduring, popular and charismatic figures -- made everyone in the athletics arena smile on Saturday but it was for the last time. "I keep telling them I could be their father so they need to give me some respect!" laughed the man who seems to have sprinted on forever as he talked of his opponents in the heats of the 60 meters at the world indoor championships. "Some of them don't like it that their mum is my biggest fan -- but it's all fun and games," It has always been fun and games with this most laid-back and cool of Caribbean athletes but Collins, the one-time world 100 meters champion who put his home of Saint Kitts & Nevis on the sporting map, confirmed the bad news for his huge fan club.
