Sir Bobby Charlton's brother has claimed the legend is having 'good days and bad days' follow his recent diagnosis of dementia. 

News of the 83-year-old former footballer's illness was announced by his family over the weekend, just three months after the death of Sir Bobby's older brother Jack - who also had dementia. 

Fellow 1966 World Cup-winning team-mate Nobby Stiles passed away last week at the age of 78 having been combatting advanced dementia in recent years, but Charlton's brother Tommy confirmed that he had an emotional conversation with his sibling on Monday.
