England football legend Jimmy Greaves is to auction his 1966 World Cup medal just 5 years after he received it. Greaves missed out on a medal back in 1966 as he was injured at the group stages of the tournament and it wasn't until a 2007 campaign for England's reserves to be honored that he was finally awarded one. He will auction his medal at Sotheby's, where it is expected to fetch as much as £50,000.

Wow, this is something I'd have thought he would want to stay in the family but I hear the other team members have flogged theirs too!
