Football Saturday’s Chris Kamara reassures viewers after slander raised concern

blank

Chris Kamara said he suffers from speech apraxia after raising concerns with an appearance on Football Saturday.

The Sky Sports presenter and former footballer, 64, appeared to slur his words on screen this weekend, prompting viewers to message him on social media.

Kamara said on Twitter he developed the speech disorder alongside an existing thyroid problem.

He wrote: “Just wanted to let a few of you who tweeted me today know that I’m fine.

“Alongside my thyroid problem, I have developed an apraxia of speech and have been working to get my speech back to normal.

“Some days it can be a bit slow and some days it’s normal. Hopefully I can beat that!”

Jeff Stelling, co-host of Kamara on Football Saturday, replied: “@chris_kammy you still bring life, energy, fun and understanding to all your coverage of Football Saturday.

“We all love you, buddy. Go on!”

Olympic gold medalist Sam Quek and former soccer player Viv Anderson were also among those who sent messages of support.

Kamara previously underwent a brain scan to check if he was developing dementia after suffering from what he described as “brain fog”.

He feared the illness could be linked to his leading the ball as a footballer.

However, his symptoms were instead explained by an underactive thyroid, for which he is now being treated.

In addition to his career on the field and small screen, Kamara is also a singer who has released two Christmas albums and a charity single.
