Brian Clough gave him a peck on the cheek on live television. And now sports broadcaster Gary Newbon has recalled that memorable kiss in our latest pod.
Cloughie always remained loyal to Newbon, ensuring he got the interviews he needed - even when it was straight after a 4-0 defeat.
Newbon paved the way for the instant post-match TV interviews that we take for granted these days. His new book looks back at an amazing career spanning 50 years.
This pod is the trailer for the full interview.
