Gordon Banks was an English goalkeeper, who is now widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers ever to have played. His skill is epitomised in the 1970 world cup, where he saved an amazing shot from Pele. The save was so unexpected that Pele turned around and began to cheer, thinking it was a goal. Banks played in 1966, when England won the world cup, and probably had the safest hands in the history of the beautiful game.
"Wow, what a safe. You wearing Gordon Banks' gloves?"
"I must be!"
