‘If I make 80, that’ll be a miracle’: Allan Border reveals tragic Parkinson’s diagnosis


Australian cricket legend Allan Border has Parkinson’s and says it will be a miracle if he lives to 80.

The first player in history to score 11,000 Test runs, Border has revealed he was diagnosed with the disease in 2016 but had been hiding it from the public eye for seven years.

“I’m a pretty private person and I didn’t want people to feel sorry for me sort of thing,” the 68-year-old told Newscorp.

“Whether people care you don’t know. But I know there’ll come a day when people will notice.”

Border’s trusted Fox Sports colleague Steve Crawley told Border at dinner last week that his good friends had already noticed.
