Man City’s two late goals to win the league.
2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah.
Van Barneveld v Taylor in that final.
Nadal v Federer - Wimbledon 2008.
That cricket World Cup final a few weeks back.
Patriots v Giants in the Super Bowl in 2008.

Spring to mind as genuinely incredible events in terms of sheer drama on the absolute grandest stages in their respective sports.

Witnessing Brian Laura's 375 and 400 are up there for me in my lifetime.

Also staying up to watch Michael Johnson as an 11 year old during Atlanta 96 was incredible.

I'm fairly confident Michael Johnson wasn't 11 in 1996, Tooj.

The Headingley Test of 1981. Watching Muhammad Ali regain the World title from George Foreman, when the fight was shown in full the night after. Rugby WC Final 2003. England vs West Germany semi of 1990. Seb Coe vs Steve Ovett Moscow 80. Red Rum winning his Grand Nationals. Nick Faldo overhauling Greg Norman in the Masters. Borg vs McEnroe 81.

As a single moment, rather than the overall result/game (even though he did win), Tiger Woods' chip on the 16th at Augusta in 2005.

Michael Thomas scoring for Arsenal in the last minute of the last game at Anfield.

Toon wise Albert’s chip, Asprilla’s 3rd, Shearer’s 201st and Bellamy against Feyenoord. Owen’s goal against Argentina, Gazza Italia 90 of course. The best though, flashing cameras on KK as we clinched promotion to the Premiership. Happy days!

That Gareth Edwards try still raise the hairs on my neck, never been a better one. I remember watching that game as a vey young lad, 4 or 5 I'd have been, as my Grandad was friends with David Duckham. Edwards vs Sid Going. 2 absolute legends of the game.
