You can have a look at this page for some examples: http://www.auburn.edu/~murraba/fact.html
Here I reproduce some part of that page for you:
According to Webster's Dictionary a fact is "anything that is done or happens; anything actually existent; any statement strictly true; truth; reality."
Three examples of facts that are concrete and that could be documented include:
Whereas an opinion is defined as "indicating a belief, view, sentiment, conception."
Here comes another helpful hint from another website that I am directly quoting for you:

“Can this statement be proved?
To check for opinions, ask yourself,
“Does this tell a thought or feeling?”
“Would the statement be true all of the time?”
Look for clue words such as
feel, believe, always, never, none,
most, least, best, and worst
