Boxing legend Frank Bruno has been left battling his demons after suffering a relapse in his battle with depression and bipolar disorder following the deaths of four of his friends due to coronavirus.
The larger than life Bruno has struggled through the year while coming to terms with not only the loss of loved ones but also the cruel reality of being unable to attend funerals and say final goodbyes.
Speaking this week during an exclusive interview with the Sun, Bruno revealed how the events of the past several months have put life into perspective, while leaving him 'on the brink' regarding his own mental wellbeing.

'I can't lie mentally, the last few months have been really, really tough,' Bruno, 58, said.
'There have been some really dark days which have pushed me right to the brink. But I am still here and still fighting and that's what I will always try to do.'
