'Phil Liggett: The Voice of Cycling' filmmakers Eleanor Sharpe and Nickolas Bird spent 11 weeks in South Africa, the UK, Australia and France to document Liggett's 51-year-career. 

“This is not a cycling film. It’s a film about a man facing retirement, reflecting on his amazing life,” Bird told IF.

“It’s about grief, courage and ageing.”

Currently in post production, the coronavirus is likely to cause quite a bit of delay to its release. 

While we wait, we asked you to send in your favourite photos with Phil and now we are sharing some of them. 

Rob Arnold/Ride Media: Here's one photo that I cherish: the two of them at work together, near the end of the 2017 Tour de France, filled with concentration (and Paul – as always – with a sneaky grin).

Kathy Emerald: Talk about good sports.....what a fun day!😁

Kate Riley - Surfers Paradise Alliance: After flying 20,000kms to Australia to be my event Ambassador for the Oceanway Ride on the Gold Coast. He didn’t know me it was my first cycling event but he flew across the world to support me anyway. This was captured after it was all done.. a very special moment.. a friend for life.

Nick Kourambas: I rode down to see some Herald Sun Tour action after racing my own crit and unfortunately it was all over but I found Phil Liggett ! Absolute gentleman!! After talking to a lady about her dog and giving her dog a kiss, he asked me about my race and happy to take a pic 👊🏻

Leonard Greis: This photo was taken around 10 years ago when Phil and Paul agreed to be part of an Après Vélo Live the Ride charity drive.

Allan Rankin: This photo of Phil with my son was taken at the Australian Road Champs at Mt Buninyong a few years ago now. Phil was incredibly accommodating and engaging.

Jacinta Main McHale: Here’s a special one! I was on holiday with Phil and his wife in December on a Freedom to roam ride to support rhinos for which Phil and his wife are huge advocates. 

Gai Hodgson Wilson: Ran into Phil at Boccellis in Adelaide at TDU 2015. A lovely gentleman. He was there with Paul Sherwen who was also delightful. 

Rod Annear: Here is 'Team Liggett' at Le Tour at the finish line at Alpe d'Huez. We brought him his own jersey in case we bumped into him - worked out well. 

Julie Coveney: On a very wet and challenging L’étape Australia 2017 

Jason Kennett: My dad and Phil at the 2015 Australian Cycling Championships in Buninyong.

Mark Rathmell: Some time ago

Louise Lusher: Hideous photo but Phil actually took this photo himself on my phone. Mind you we were looking straight into a bright summer Australian morning sun
