George Best the superstar and member of MENSA...

Not many people know that the boy from Belfast, the late and truly great George Best was at one time a member of MENSA. His sister Barbara has made the revelation in her book Our George which tells the inside story of living with her football mad brother who spent every spare moment of his time playing with the ball.

Best came to Manchester at the age of just 15, apparently he was so shy that his mum and dad had to take him to buy a pair of long trousers.

The book contains a wealth of previously unseen family photographs, documents and correspondence 'much of it, deeply poignant' between George and his family.
