    Anyone else watch this?

    I knew the story of his playing career, didn't know anything about the coup in Brazil and him smiling like an eejit beside a murderous dictator, that was very interesting stuff, didn't think it was quite as good as the Maradona doc a few years ago, but never felt bored either.

    I read a review saying they could have made it into a multi-part series and it's true, probably a lot of interesting stuff that didn't get mentioned, still worth a watch.

    I know he's well on in years but seeing him with a zimmerframe and in a wheelchair was a bit of a shock.
