First interview & pics in tomorrow’s Sunday People

We have granted them an exclusive tomorrow because they have been great to Jimmy since his stroke. Freda & I went up today for the first time since Jim was taken ill. Because of my face ops of the same period , I had been running all the info and press releases virtually from my sick bed and then the living room sofa. It was great to see him. He’s still got a massive mountain to climb but the speech is coming along quite well and he moved his right leg for the first time on his own yesterday. We are going to be putting on some sort of show with lots of players telling their favourite Jimmy story and telling tales of his unbelievable ability in all walks of life. By that I mean he was the greatest Goalscorer and a sublime footballer to boot, he was the best TV pundit ever and the funniest after dinner speaker on the circuit . Now he has to be the best fighter to get back from what was a major stroke. There are massive costs in having hundreds of hours of physio when he gets out and quite a lot of home nursing care as well, so this show will be a kind of benefit to help towards that huge cost. We will let you know as soon as we have details but Steve Perryman has volunteered to help and if Steve is in, lots more great names will follow. Anyway, I’m going on a bit, read all about Jim’s road to recovery in tomorrow’s People
