Only the most charismatic are known by just one name. Known to his adoring public simply as ‘Seve’, Severiano Ballesteros took the world of golf by storm and transcended the sport, with his magnetic personality and sublime skill.
Now you can watch a fantastic tribute courtesy of the BBC to be shown on Sunday 10th July. Presented by Gary Lineker, this heart-warming tribute celebrates Seve’s life and features exclusive footage of the man himself.

Seve: The Legend’ on BBC One, Sunday 10th July, 10.25pm
Handsome, flamboyant and passionate, Seve strode the fairways for 30 years. He won the greatest honours in the game including three Open Championships and two Masters titles, often playing miraculous escape shots that held galleries in awe, from St Andrews to Augusta.
He became a European talisman in the Ryder Cup, on the winning side four times as a player, and memorably, once as a captain on the Spanish course of Valderrama.
Tragically at the age of just 54, Seve lost his painful battle with brain cancer earlier this year. His foundation had already raised millions for cancer charities, ensuring his legacy will live on.
