2. Concrete Football

Movie that pays homage to street football, which is the place where some of the best current French players come from.

It is a little bit shorter than other movies. Entertaining, although this one is not suitable for children.

3. Hands of stone

This film tells the real story about the legendary boxer Roberto Durán. It tells how he needed help from a North-American coach, played by Robert de Niro, in order to get back on track.

Who was Roberto Durán? We do not want to tell much, but he was known as Hands of Stone. In fact, he managed to become the best boxer in the lightweight category of all time.

4. Icarus

Docu-film, Oscar winner in 2017, tells the story of an American amateur cyclist that starts using doping substances to improve his performance.

From then on, he stays in touch with one of the physicians that gives him all the doping substances he needs. In the end, he ends up dismantling one of the most important doping schemes to this date that involved an entire country: Russia.

It lasts quite a while, so we suggest watching it in different parts, like a TV show.

Sports Documentaries

Leaving TV Shows aside, let’s mention some Documentaries that you can watch during Quarantine. These four options are based on true stories and they have become really popular in different digital platforms:

1. Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernández

Documentary that analyzes the life of the American ex-football player Aaron Hernández. Through interviews to colleagues and friends, it tells how the promising player from the NFL committed a crime and spent the rest of his days in prison.

2. Late life. The Chien-Ming Wang story

Chien-Ming Wang was the only Taiwanese player who reach the professional baseball league in the USA. During his career, a serious injury did not let him play for quite a while. This documentary is about how players live one of the worst moments as a professional.

An interesting approach to the reality of sport injuries all over the world. How you can go fall from grace to complete oblivion.

3. Maradona in Sinaloa

The last story of one of the most peculiar figures from the world of football: Diego Armando Maradona, capable of the best inside the football pitch, but also of the worst things outside of it.

His arrival to the second category of Mexican football changes an entire province as Sinaloa.

4. Williams

It is the true story about Sir Frank Williams, F1 ex-pilot who had an accident that almost took his life. His willpower and love for sports helped him move forward, becoming one of the most admired F1 pilots who won so many races in the Gran Circo.

If you like motor sports, do not miss one of the most shocking stories.

Sports TV Shows

TV shows are trending in digital platforms and the world of sports could not miss such an opportunity. Here you have our three suggestions:

1. F1, Drive to Survive

This documentary takes a closer look at the privileged world of Formula 1 and races.

2. QB1: Beyond the Lights

3. Sunderland Till I Die

Another of the most popular series that is also based on true events. You will be able to enter a professional club from England, Sunderland, and its fall from grace from the highest category. It almost disappeared due to all the news surrounding the club.

You will be amazed by every chapter. Above all, it shows the reality of a professional football club, always with all the millions and luxury.
