Four years ago at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Chad le Clos stunned the world when he beat Michael Phelps to an Olympic gold medal in the 200m butterfly. His father Bert, Chad’s best friend and mentor, captured hearts all over the planet with his emotional response to Chad’s victory on the BBC.
Chad goes head-to-head with Phelps again this summer, with their races the most anticipated of the Games, but the journey to Rio has been beset with family pain. Bert has been fighting prostate cancer since his diagnosis in 2015; and his wife Geraldine, Chad’s mum, is fighting breast cancer for the second time, and underwent a double mastectomy in May this year.
“UNBELIEVABLE” is the story of Chad and Bert’s road to Rio, a story of extraordinary emotion, incredible commitment and burning desire for Olympic gold. A OneToWatch production, UNBELIEVABLE has been directed by Sir Matthew Pinsent, himself a four time Olympic Gold medallist and BBC broadcaster.
