"Geoff and I have been friends ever since the '66 World Cup. When he came on my theatre show this year he was one of the very best guests we have ever had. Funny and intelligent at the same time and extremely good when meeting the fans. I'd love to work more with him - he's truly a delight to work with and a great bloke as well!"
Words from the much missed late Jimmy Greaves, footballer, 1966 World Cup team member, presenter, author and pundit
