It includes my good and not so good moments, unveiling some of my best-kept secrets and showing the real-life evolution of a dream come true.”
The documentary travels through the life of one of the greatest icons of Spanish football’s ‘golden age’, who retired in June 2019 after 18-year career, revealing to Prime members some of the most iconic places in Torres’ life including Japan, Liverpool, London and Madrid, and featuring some of the most important people from Torres’ career including his locker room colleagues, international football icons and coaches, featuring newly-recorded, exclusive interviews with Torres, in which he talks openly about his life, including talking for the first time about some of the most emotional moments of his career.
“I’m thrilled to be able to show our Prime members the first images of this documentary that explores the life of one of the greatest symbols of Spanish football and his meteoric career,” said Ricardo Cabornero, Head of Prime Video Content, Spain. “I’m sure that this documentary, which reinforces our commitment to offer exclusive sports content with the best national and international talent, will reveal to all fans and followers of Fernando and Atlético de Madrid a different side of this football star.”
