George Best needs little introduction. A legend in his own lifetime, he is undoubtedly the greatest footballer the UK has ever produced.

Blessed with an extraordinary gift he brought a beauty and grace to the game never before seen.

But Best was unable to cope with the success and fame his genius brought.

His fabled story is littered with tales of women and sex and, of course, alcohol.

Much has been written about Best, but very little substantiated by the man himself.

That is until George Best opened his heart and engaged us in one of the most exhilarating life stories for years, Blessed.

In his own words George recounts the halcyon days at Manchester United, the big games and European Cup win of '68. And then there's the heartbreaking truth about the death of his mother and his struggles with alcohol that forced him to face up to a life without drink.

Blessed reveals the man behind the up-for-a-laugh, boozy, womanizing stereotype that had dogged George Best for so long.

Open and honest about his mistakes, George is also incredibly candid about his triumphs, his regrets, and, only three years before his death, what he had hoped for the future. 'Don't coach him, he's a genius' Sir Matt Busby. 'Unquestionably the greatest' Sir Alex Ferguson
