Ex-Liverpool star, Terry McDermott has become the latest football legend to be diagnosed with dementia

The 69-year-old, who made 329 appearances and scored 81 goals for the club between 1974 and 1982, has announced he is in the early stages of Lewy Body dementia following hospital tests.

McDermott said: “I’ve got to get on with it and I will. It’s the way I’ve been brought up. Nothing has come to me easily. I’m not frightened of taking it on and also, as we’ve seen, there are a lot of former players in a worse state than me.

“Battling is second nature. The worst thing was, until my condition was diagnosed you don’t know what’s going on. The number of ex-players being diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s is frightening
