Chris Kamara shares picture from an oxygen chamber

TV football pundit Chris Kamara, 64, has tweeted a photograph of himself in an oxygen chamber where he is receiving treatment for a medical condition which affects his speech.

The former Sheffield United player was forced to stand down from his role with Sky Sports on Soccer Saturday where he would provide updates from matches around the country because of the condition.Viewers became concerned when the former footballer, who played more than 650 professional games, started slurring his words during one live broadcast.

This prompted Kamara to reveal he has a thyroid condition which has now caused apraxia.

Despite giving up his Soccer Saturday role, he continues to work and had been co-commentating on ITV’s The Games.

He wrote on Twitter: ‘Six enjoyable days working on The Games.

‘Back in the oxygen chamber today as the recovery continues.’

Initially, he had feared the condition had been brought on by repetitive heading of the football during his long career.

Fortunately, the speech impediment was brought on by an underactive thyroid gland.

Last month he said his treatment was working very well.
