Production has started on a new Julian Fellowes series charting the origins of modern football.

The English Game is a planned six-part Netflix series exploring the humble history of a sport loved across the world.

It will explore the class divide facing enthusiasts who created the beautiful game, and raised it from a hobby to a global phenomenon.

Work has now begun on the Netflix original in the UK, which is written and produced by Downton Abbey creator Fellowes.
