Even people who don't know football know who Gazza is!
The man born in the North-East as Paul John Gascoigne has found headlines on the front pages almost as often as the back pages, thanks to his more-than colourful lifestyle.
But it is for his time as a footballer that Gazza's name will forever live in sporting history.
During a career spanning more than 10 different clubs and 57 England caps, Gazza played some unforgettable games and established himself as one of the sport's all-time greats: a master of skill, flair and invention like none that his country had produced before, nor perhaps ever will again.
Today we meet Gazza, the man behind the headlines.
