No less an authority than Pelé called George Best “the single best player in the world”. Naturally gifted, charismatic and thrilling to watch, Best turned the beautiful game into an art form. His time at Manchester United is legendary, his ability to carry the hopes of a nation unrivalled, but by the age of 29 his career at the very top level of the game was over. The pressures of fame and Best’s constant struggle with alcoholism forced him to walk a line between a blaze of achievement and the blight of addiction. A compelling insight into the life of a sporting icon.
