“The Lion King”: Oh, you didn’t know that “The Lion King” was a loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”? Well, fancy that. A jealous brother kills the king, the son finds out about it and wants revenge. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, I mean, Timon and Pumba, distract him.

Young and Muir are good friends away from football, they remain intensely competitive on the field.

It doesn’t always take gold to recognize that spirit.
