This New Netflix Documentary Is Going To Have Everyone Talking

One of our favourite things about Netflix is the neverending stream of brilliant documentaries available on the platform.

The streaming service's original content is often the best of the bunch, with shows like Making A Murderer and The Keepers becoming the only talking point in offices around Ireland after their release.

Now, Netflix has released details of the latest one to drop - Icarus.

Icarus won the Orwell award at this year's Sundance Film Festival and looks at the contentious issue of doping in sport.

A chance meeting between Bryan Fogel and a Russian scientist transformed his story from a personal experiment into a geopolitical thriller involving dirty urine, unexplained death, and Olympic Gold - exposing the biggest scandal in sports history.

It will be available to watch from August 4, being released on the same day that the World Athletics Championships kick off in London.

This is going to be a must-watch.
