Between The Lines: Peter Crouch

The former English footballer and author of I, Robot discusses being taller than C-3PO, the reading habits of fellow footballers and what it's like to get 60,000 cheering fans onto their feet. 

Since hanging up his football boots, Peter Crouch is well on the way to establishing himself as a national treasure.

That Peter Crouch Podcast established his gift for telling a great anecdote, then two books - 2018's How To Be A Footballer and this year's I, Robot - offered fans an even deeper look at the reality behind the beautiful game.

Here we quiz Crouchy for our new video series Between The Lines to find which players should resist following him into literary stardom, what it really feels like to score a goal and - more importantly - whether he is taller than C3PO.

I, Robot: How To Be A Footballer 2 by Peter Crouch is out now.
