LEGENDS IN CONCERT: JULIO IGLESIAS

Born on 23rd September 1943 in Madrid to eminent physician Julio Snr and wife Maria. It could be claimed that Julio Jnr had the best start in life; he had the best of schooling and studied law as a means to following his ambition to becoming a career diplomat. But he was also a superb athlete with a natural flair for football, and as time would tell it was the call of the stadium rather than the political arena that finally won the day. Such was his footballing potential he was eventually signed up by Real Madrid as a goalkeeper; this ambition realised he believed his future was secure until fate dealt him a cruel blow when he was involved in a car accident and partially paralysed, leaving him with a two year battle to learn to walk again.
