Great iconic sporting moments

In an effort to break the tension ahead of a massive game for both teams today, here is a thread for posters to come up with what they consider iconic or significant moments in sport. If you can provide a video clip then all the better. Even as a Chelsea fan I am bored of seeing the Gerrard slip so I would appreciate it if people hold back on posting that one.

So here is mine, its 1993 and Shane Warne is bowling his first ever ball in his debut Ashes appearance to Mike Gatting. In the build up to the series the Australian press had been hyping up Warne whilst the English press (who knew little about him) remained highly sceptical about his ability.

Mike Gatting was selected to play as he was considered England's best batsman against spin bowling. The rest is history as they say, and it set the tone for about 13 years of Shan Warne dominance over England and all other test teams.

Oh and Lewis becoming undisputed Champion was an amazing night for me. After I sat and watched that embarrassing decision from the judges from the first fight I was delighted to see justice done.

Tbf he may have meant the Olympiakos goal, the West Ham cup final goal, the CL final comeback?

Maradona's pass for the winning goal in the 1986 World Cup final.

In that case he should stated what he meant.

But I think we all know exactly what he did mean

This one's stuck in my mind since I was a 16-year-old.
