“I reached a point when I’d get through training and tended not to feel too bad but then would get home, crash, feel exhausted and struggle to get out of bed.
“It was hard to concentrate on anything. I had brain fog.
“I was just dragging myself through training and hoping it would get better.
He mentions "chronic fatigue": he presumably has either a mild form of chronic fatigue syndrome or overtraining syndrome. He is not really that famous, but was a professional football player.
