Ex-Manchester United star Eric Cantona has launched an exhibition on sporting heroes and their impact on society.

The football legend helped to curate the show, which also features artist Michael Browne's depictions of soccer icon Diego Maradona, boxer Muhammad Ali and Olympic athlete Jesse Owens.

Browne said he wanted to highlight those "who have been fighting against injustices throughout the world".

Cantona said he hoped the display would encourage interest among children.

The 56-year-old said he wanted the sport-themed artworks at Manchester's National Football Museum to introduce youngsters to wider issues in society.

"Now I can do nothing but maybe the kids can help us in the future, so it's important to bring the kids," he said.
