The group said: "Starring an A-list cast - Ferguson, Mourinho, Guardiola, Ronaldo, Gascoigne, Shearer, Lineker, Butcher - never-before-seen archive footage and emotional testimony from Lady Elsie Robson, this is an intimate portrait of one of sport’s most inspirational and influential figures.

"Covering a career that saw some of the greatest moments in footballing history; the hand of God, Gazza’s tears, England’s greatest World Cup abroad, titles in Europe’s top leagues, European triumph with Ipswich Town and a Barcelona treble, this heartfelt and personal film is led by the intimate recollections of Sir Bobby Robson himself.

"During an extraordinary career, in which Robson overcame the most extreme challenges, including battles with cancer, his journey came full circle when he returned to save his beloved Newcastle.

"Ahead of its release the film will receive three special stadium screenings at Wembley Stadium, London, on May 23, St James’ Park, Newcastle, on May 22 and Portman Road, Ipswich, on May 25 in honour of the footballing giant and in support of The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, which raises money to find more effective ways to detect and treat cancer."
