Sir Geoff Hurst’s pain in Spain

SIR GEOFF Hurst is claiming he was conned out of £600,000 he invested in luxury apartments.

England’s 1966 hat-rick hero began proceedings to sue a businessman, with six other investors, for £2million.

The former footballer, 68, was the biggest loser from buying into three properties in a complex near Puerto Banus.

Mark Cordner, stands accused of pocketing much of the cash but he claims he is also a victim after his former partner Michael Hone disappeared.

Peter Knox QC, representing the claimants, says the group were deceived in to handing over cash.

Giving evidence on Monday, Sir Geoff also appeared in a ten minute promotional video to be shown in court next week.
