The All I Need singer told Radio X's George Godfrey how he came to score the music for ab upcoming documentary about the footballer.

Jake Bugg has talked about his writing the music for an upcoming Ronaldinho documentary, The Happiest Man In The World, revealing how it kept him busy through lockdown.

The singer-songwriter - whose All I Need single is our Radio X Record Of The Week spoke to Radio X's George Godfrey about the new track and how he came to create the music for the upcoming film about the legendary Brazilian football star.

"It's a crazy thing that came about," the Nottingham rocker told Radio X. "The guys who directed the film, they've done some music videos for me in the past and they asked my manager if he'd be the music supervisor for the movie and he asked if I'd have a go for it."

The Lightning Bolt singer added: "I've never done anything like that before, but I like a challenge and you know because it's Ronaldinho, you can't really say no can you? So you know it's been a good experience and to be honest, that's probably what kept me going through the first lockdown and that's probably what's going to keep me going through the second."
