England World Cup winner and Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton has been diagnosed with dementia.

The news follows the deaths of his older brother Jack in July and fellow World Cup-winner Nobby Stiles on Friday, both of whom had also been diagnosed with dementia.

Sir Bobby, 83, won three league titles, a European Cup and an FA Cup with United during 17 years at Old Trafford.

"Stay strong, we love you," said United striker Marcus Rashford.

His wife, Lady Norma Charlton, expressed the hope that the knowledge of his diagnosis - first reported by the Telegraph - could help others.

Wow, this is horrible news - especially after the deaths of his brother and his team-mate from dementia earlier in the year :'( .

I just hope he receives all the care he needs and deserves as he fights this horrible disease.
