FOOTBALL legend Bobby Charlton diagnosed with dementia

Sir Bobby Charlton, 83, winner of England’s 1996 World Cup campaign and football legend, has been diagnosed with dementia, his wife Lady Norma Charlton disclosed to The Telegraph.

Sir Bobby came second in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award in 1958 and again in 1959. In 2008, he received the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Lifetime Achievement Award.

The football superstar spent most of his illustrious career at Manchester United and won the Ballon d’Or the same year he was an English World Cup Winner. He scored 249 goals in 758 games for Man United and 49 goals in 106 games for England.

The news comes after his pal Nobby Stiles passed away on October 30 after a long illness and his older brother, Jack Charlton, died in July. Both were diagnosed with dementia later in life.
