Sine-Gordon model is a paradigmatic integrable quantum field theory featuring strongly correlated dynamics, topological excitations, bound states and strong-weak coupling duality. It is also realised experimentally, allowing us to submit theoretical ideas to reality check. In this talk I overview a number of recent results concerning its non-equilibrium dynamics following a (global) quantum quench, highlighting results as well as outstanding challenges.
