The news that George Best’s hours are numbered is tragic. One of the greatest football of all time is fighting for his life at a hospital in London. He’s spent years battling alcoholism but couldn’t give up the drink even after a liver transplant. In a cruel twist of fate the final moments may be spent on the day the UK liberalises it’s drinking laws and bars can be open for longer. He will leave a great football legacy. Maybe there will also be a lesson for the rest of us when it comes to drinking and we won’t all become victims of alcohol.
