Kamara said on Twitter he developed the speech disorder alongside an existing thyroid problem.

He wrote: “Just wanted to let a few of you who tweeted me today know that I’m fine.

“Alongside my thyroid problem, I have developed an apraxia of speech and have been working to get my speech back to normal.

“Some days it can be a bit slow and some days it’s normal. Hopefully I can beat that!”

Jeff Stelling, co-host of Kamara on Football Saturday, replied: “@chris_kammy you still bring life, energy, fun and understanding to all your coverage of Football Saturday.

“We all love you, buddy. Go on!”

Several others have also responded, including former England, Arsenal and Manchester United player Viv Anderson, who wrote: “If anyone can beat this it’s you, Kam all my best wishes to you and your family.”

England and Manchester City women’s footballer Steph Houghton responded with a heart emoji, while Scotland and Luton player Robert Snodgrass wrote: “Sending greetings big fella”.

Kamara previously underwent a brain scan to check if he was developing dementia after suffering from what he described as “brain fog”.

He feared the illness could be linked to his leading the ball as a footballer.

However, his symptoms were instead explained by an underactive thyroid, for which he is now being treated.
