"Sir Bobby Charlton says his scepticism about women's football has been confounded by the Olympics action, which has seen Great Britain make the quarter-finals.
The former Manchester United striker, who won the World Cup with England in 1966, said: "I have been watching women's games on television and I have had to remind myself I am not watching the men. And I mean that as a compliment.
"They pass, they tackle, they head and they're organised. I have to admit I was sceptical about the women's game. That was a mistake. I should never have underestimated them the way I did. Women's football used to be ridiculed but not any more.""
Wait, you mean they... play football? Who'd have thought, eh?
