Creed: Liverpool boxer Tony Bellew 'astonished' by role

Former world boxing champion Tony Bellew has told the BBC he cannot believe he acted "alongside Hollywood superstars" in the forthcoming Rocky sequel.

Creed, the seventh film in the Rocky series, was partly filmed in Liverpool and also features Everton Football Club, with the final bout taking place at Goodison Park.

The Liverpool boxer, who plays a bad guy in the film, said Everton "changed his life" and he felt he was "giving something back".

He spoke to BBC North West Tonight reporter Hayley Hassall at the premiere in London.
