Denis Law was part of United's first ever visit to Australia back in 1967 on a close-season tour which spanned an incredible 42 days, three countries and 12 matches.

The United legend describes the trip as an "amazing" experience despite the almost constant rain throughout America, Australia and New Zealand.

It proved to be an eventful tour for Law who scored four goals in four games and was also sent off in United's final match against Western Australia in Perth for bad language.

To hear more from Denis about the long, but memorable trip, watch the video above.
