Amazon Prime Video has announced new documentary about England’s all-time top goal scorer and Derby County manager, Wayne Rooney.



The biopic features previously unseen archive footage of Rooney’s childhood, looking at his relationship with his family, his Sunday League days with Coppelhouse Boys and his first moments in an Everton shirt.



Also announced was Lioness: The Nicola Adams Story. The film explores the life and success of the record-breaking female boxer.
