According to a report in the British media "The Telegraph", Manchester United legend Bobby Charlton was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Bobby Charlton’s wife Norma confirmed this and allowed the media to report. Norma hopes that publicizing Sir Bobby Charlton's diagnosis will help others.
Sir Bobby Charlton is 83 years old. He helped England win the 1966 World Cup. He is also one of the greatest players in Manchester United history. He represented Manchester United in 759 games and scored 249 goals.
Bobby Charlton’s former Manchester United teammate Nobby Styles died on Friday, and Styles was also diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in his later years. The FA’s research shows that football players are 3.5 times more likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s because of head injuries caused by fierce confrontation. Charlton’s family hopes that publicizing their illness can also help relevant organizations reduce the risk of athletes’ head injuries and provide assistance to retired players and their families suffering from Alzheimer’s.
