Thought by many to be England’s greatest footballer, Sir Bobby Charlton earned icon status during his time as a midfielder for Manchester United and England, and to mark his 80th birthday, this new documentary looks back at his life.

He was the centrepiece of the England 1966 World Cup-winning team, and a crucial part of United’s 1968 European Cup triumph, and all this after cheating death in 1958 in the Munich air disaster, which killed eight of his Busby Babes teammates.

Contributors including Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs and Franz Beckenbauer explain why Sir Bobby is a true legend.
