'Stay strong' Dan Walker reaches out to Chris Kamara as he breaks silence on health fears


Sky Sports broadcaster Chris Kamara, has given a health update after being diagnosed with a thyroid condition. The news comes after viewers raised concern for his welfare on Saturday when they noticed the football favourite was slurring his words. 

Chris, 64, was covering Shrewsbury Town’s League One trip to Rotherham on Saturday afternoon when he first sparked fears amongst Sky viewers.

His slurred speech caused many fans to tweet and ask him if he was okay. 

The much-loved broadcaster and former pro midfielder subsequently took to Twitter to tell his 1.8 million followers that he was suffering from a new health condition that impedes his ability to talk.

He wrote: “Just wanted to let a few of you know who tweeted me today that I am ok ish.

He said: “You’re a hero to me and so many others Kammy sending love.” (sic)
