Ex-footballer dementia : a kick in the head

Two football stories feature in the main BBC News bulletin this evening. Alan Shearer has produced a documentary assessing whether regular heading of a football is a contributory factor for dementia later in life. It will be screened on BBC1 on Sunday 12th November and promises to make uncomfortable reading for those responsible for governing the beautiful game.

The second story covers the sacking of Patrice Evra by Olympic Marseille. Evra Aimee a kick at the head of a Marseille supporter before a European game earlier in the week. I can only assume that M. Evra had been spending too much time in heading practice.
