Video: Gordon Banks’ stunning save from Pele in 1970
England’s World Cup winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks has died at the age of 81.
Aside from the triumph at Wembley in 1966, the defining moment of Banks’ career was his stunning save from Pele at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.
Sheffield-born Banks dived low to his right to get his hand to the Brazil star’s powerful header. Pele cites it as the greatest save he has ever seen.
