One of the world’s greatest icons Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) and his biggest rival, the young and talented John McEnroe (Shia Le Beouf), are the focus of a new film that revists their legendary duel during the 1980’s Wimbledon men's singles final.

Avengers actor Stellan Skarsgard plays Borg's real-life tennis coach Lennart Bergelin.

He explains to Sam FM how both actors nailed their parts in the battle between "fire and ice":

Borg McEnroe stars Sverrir Gudnason, Shia Le Beouf and Stellan Skarsgard and is in cinemas from September 22nd.
