Fears over return of Best's body

The return of George Best's body to Belfast may be delayed due to concerns that the city could grind to a halt as fans prepare to pay their respects, it has emerged.

"Police are very concerned we will close Belfast down if we arrive on Wednesday," said Phil Hughes, the late footballer's agent.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to come out and pay homage to the sporting legend.

I truly hope that the ceremony gets a good turnout because the man's greatness deserves to be acknowledged.

If I was a native of Belfast I would certainly go out and pay tribute to the man.

Make him proud, people.
