Any British football fan who was around for the 1966 World Cup (and what a glorious win that was!) will remember the saga of Pickles, the hero collie dog who recovered the Jules Rimet trophy which had been stolen before the tournament began.
The theft threatened to derail the biggest competition in world football because how could the tournament go ahead without a trophy?
Pickles is being remembered now, more than five decades later and a month before the 2018 World Cup, because the riddle of who stole the trophy has finally been solved with two gangster brothers named as the men behind the infamous robbery.
Sidney Cugullere and his brother Reg are said to have 'nicked it for the thrill' months before England hosted the tournament, 52 years ago next month according to an investigation by the Daily Mirror, which has revived the story.
