Description

Jimmy Greaves remains the greatest goalscorer in English football history with 357 top-flight goals, although his England career was defined by the heartbreak of missing the 1966 World Cup Final. After slipping into the grip of alcoholism, he reinvented himself as a popular TV personality. Natural is the definitive biography of a sporting legend.
