"In England there are a lot of magazines, and in Russia we used to have the F1 Racing magazine, but due to the high investment they cancelled the project. At the moment we don’t have it; if you don’t have media you can’t have an audience, and if you don’t have an audience, why should you prepare the grandstands if you will have empty grandstands? So these are things we have to do, we have to approach the corner and we have to do a lot of things, but we can’t do it without the support of the government.

To complement the BBC Two drama ‘United’, BBC Sport presents a very special documentary looking back at the remarkable career of arguably England's greatest and most iconic footballer, Sir Bobby Charlton.

Sir Bobby was a key member of the England team that won the World Cup on home soil in 1966 and part of a Manchester United team touched by success and tragedy in equal measure.

Charlton survived the Munich air disaster in 1958, which killed several of his team-mates dubbed the ‘Busby Babes’.

He became a crucial figure in the club’s resurgence, winning two league titles and unforgettably in 1968 the European Cup against Benfica.

Renowned for his attacking instincts and ferocious long-range shot, he is still the record goalscorer for England and Manchester United.

Jack London The White Fang author heard the call of the wild himself throughout his life; London was an oyster pirate, a gold prospector, a rancher and, by some accounts, a plagiarist. Hard to believe that it was kidney stones that finally did in the bigger-than-life adventurer; also, WTF is up with this photo. (via Creepiest Kids’ Book Author Photos - 6 of 12 | Maxim.com)
