Rob Burrow: ‘Apart from my voice, I am absolutely fine’, says Leeds Rhinos legend

Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow, 37, has told BBC Radio 5 Live about the impact of motor neurone disease (MND).

Burrow found out he had MND – an incurable, degenerative condition that affects how nerves in the brain and spinal cord function – in December.

At the weekend, Burrow walked on to the pitch with Leeds Rhinos before kick-off in a fundraising friendly against Bradford Bulls, and then came on for an emotional final five minutes.

Speaking to Rachel Burden on BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast, he said although it is affecting his voice, he feels physically well and is still able to train.
