He taught you how to ride a bike and trained you for your first race.

He helped you make sense of Algebra and sat up with you as you crammed for your exams.

He introduced you to the world of cricket and kicked a football around with you in the rain.

He told you stories as he tucked you into bed at night and comforted you as you cried over your first heartache.

For all those memories and many more, we're celebrating those special people we call 'Dad'.

It is Father's Day on June 17, and we invite readers to celebrate their dads by sending in their special memories of their dads.

Tell your dad why he is special.
