The London 2012 Olympics is almost upon us and one of the greatest sporting films of all time, Chariots Of Fire, is re-released this week, which got us thinking about our favourite sporting flicks...

From the classics such as Rocky and Raging Bull, to the American comedies such as Waterboy and recent award winners like Senna, sporting films can be high-octane, adrenaline-fuelled thrillers, just pure, plain fun, or - occasionally - something far more epic, personal and thought-provoking.

Here are 25 of our favourite football, baseball, boxing, horse-riding and basketball films and let us know which one you've been happy to watch again and again, as well as which sporting greats we've missed from the list...
