Everyone Loves A Comeback - Our Top 8

When it comes to sport everyone loves a great comeback story, whether it’s someone's career we thought was heading for the exit, or a team on the brink of defeat, it is part of the reason we watch sport, and quite often brings us moments we will remember forever.

We've been thinking carefully about our favourite sporting comebacks and have shared with you our thoughts below.

George Foreman
Mr 'Lean Mean Grilling Machine' won his first world heavyweight title in 1973 when he beat Joe Frazier, before retiring in 1977 aged just 28. He then returned to the ring 10 years later and becoming the oldest man to be crowned world heavyweight champion at the age of 45

Kim Clijsters
Belgian tennis star announced her retirement in 2007, but not for long After giving birth, Ms Clijsters returned to the court in 2009 (raising a few eyebrows) and claiming the US Open title and Australian Open in 2011. Definitely a super mum.

Liverpool, Champions League Final
Trudging off the pitch at half-time, trailing in the 2005 Champions League Final 3-0, Liverpool fans started leaving the stadium and turning off the TV. What they missed was definitely a comeback. 11 minutes into the second half the Merseysiders were level, and claimed their 5th title after a nerve wrecking penalty shoot out.

England Cricket Team, Ian Botham & Bob Willis
Australia were on the verge of wrapping up an easy victory leading England 2-0 at the Ashes. But champion duo Ian Botham & Bob Willis had other ideas and helped seal a remarkable 18 run victory. England went on to win the ashes 3-2.

Steffi Graf
Going into the match the multi time champion Graf was the big favourite going up against Jana Novotna, who at the time hadn't a major win to her name. However Graf seemed down and out. But when the Czech double faulted for the third time the match quickly disintegrated and within minutes Graf had won a third consecutive Wimbledon title.

Red Rum
An unlikely story on our list, but a comeback nevertheless. The 1973 Grand National, Red Rum was joint favourite with Crisp but the Australian strode ahead by 33 lengths. However, Red Rum gained with every stride and won the race by 3/4 of a length, breaking the course record by 19 seconds.

European Rider Cup Team
Titled, the 'Miracle at Medinah' by media covering the event, golf fans still need to pinch themselves when thinking about the near-impossible achievement of the European team, who dragged a 10-6 point deficit back in the final day of the 2012 tournament.

Anderson Silva
Considered to be the greatest Mixed Martial artist ever, he was the favourite going into his fight with Chael Sonnen in August 2010. However, Sonnen fought good, pounded a hole in the Champs head for 23 minutes. In a swift 120 seconds, Silva dug deep and reclaimed his title.
