JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan has been in the spotlight a lot lately.

He was on the cover of the Sept. 24 issue of Forbes magazine, and was then named to the magazine's billionaires list.

He also popped up in a local parody of PSY's monster hit "Gagnam Style."

Now, he will be featured on CBS's "60 Minutes" this Sunday at 7 p.m. According to a release from the Jaguars, the program will highlight how he has overcome adversity to build a successful company and achieve his dream of owning a football team.

Correspondent Byron Pitts was with Khan as he visited his childhood home in Lahore, Pakistan. Pitts was also with Khan in Champaign-Urbana, Ill., which is home to his alma mater, the University of Illinois, and his company Flex-N-Gate.

The program will also show the day Khan, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Jacksonville leaders announced that the Jags would play a home game a year in London through 2016.

The segment will be posted the following week on 60Minutes.com and web extras will be posted on 60MinutesOvertime.com.
