A hundred years ago, a penniless lace worker from Nottingham died in Italy after years of heavy smoking and drinking - he was 46, but Herbert Kilpin left an extraordinary legacy - he founded AC Milan, one of the world's most successful football clubs. Kilpin's influence was so great that many regard him as "the father of Italian football". Now, on the centenary of his death, his achievements are finally being recognized in Nottingham too. Peter Bearne has been learning more about a football pioneer.

A prisoner in Peterborough has been convicted of battering his cellmate to death with a flat screen TV.
Jordan Palmer, 26, attacked 42-year-old Terrence Ojuederie at HMP Peterborough last December.
Palmer was cleared of murder but found guilty of manslaughter by diminished responsibility following a trial at Peterborough Crown Court.
"The attack was one of the most vicious I have seen, and happened at a time when Terry Ojuederie was unable to defend himself or escape.
I can only say as some small consolation that in all probability Terry would have lost consciousness very quickly.
On the evidence presented during the trial, the jury has found Palmer guilty of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility and I respect that decision.
Our thoughts are with Mr Ojuederie's family and friends at this difficult time, and I commend them for the dignity and respect they have demonstrated through a very difficult court process."
