Interview: Sir Geoff Hurst

To paraphrase Carlsberg's advertising campaign, we don't do interviews, but when we do, we generally pick only the finest people available.

And so it was that earlier this week we had the great good fortune to interview one of the legends of English football - Sir Geoff Hurst.

With a blogsite called Some People Are On The Pitch, it seemed only fitting that we chose the hero of the 1966 World Cup Final as our subject, so Chris was sent along to talk about Sir Geoff's long and illustrious career as well as England's chances of winning the World Cup in 2010.

The interview took place at Porter Novelli in London to promote a new World Cup commemorative medal being launched by the Royal Mint. You can get your own medal for free by visiting the Royal Mint website, so hurry along and pick up your own lucky charm while stocks last!

Finally, before we let you hear the interview, we'd just like to say a huge thank you to our old friend at TwoFootedTackle, Chris Nee for inviting us along to meet Sir Geoff himself. We're truly very grateful.

So now on with the interview which you can listen to here or if you right-click on that link, you can download the MP3 to your computer instead.
