The best of the best passed away

George Best

Pele referred to him as the best player in the world.

His performance reached a peak in his 20s, but had to stop playing after alcohol started damaging his body.

This Northern Ireland and Man Utd star struggled with alcoholism all his life eventually dying from it this morning. He was 59.

Of his sayings ""In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol. It was the worst 20 minutes of my life!"
