    Sylvester Stallone in Rocky
    London (ANI): Sylvestor Stallone's hit film Rocky has been named the best ever sports film in a poll by movie buffs. The 1976 boxing classic, which stars Stallone as an underdog battling to become the world champion heavyweight, won 20 per cent of the vote in a survey by LOVEFILM.com. The second position went to Cool Runnings, a comedy about the Jamaican Olympic Bobsled team.

    Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning Million Dollar Baby took the third place, reports the Mirror. There was a tie for the fourth spot between Tom Cruise's troubled sport agent turn in Jerry Maguire and Martin Scorsese's acclaimed boxing classic Raging Bull.
