About George Best

Christened the Fifth Beatle at his peak, Best was the first pop star footballer and had teenage girls flocking to Old Trafford decades before the likes of Giggs and Beckham. Unable to cope with the success and fame that his talent brought him, Best fell into alcoholism. Despite well-documented problems with his health and private life over the years, George Best retained the energy and character that had made him an icon to his many fans up until his death on 25 November 2005.show more
