Rob Rush told the Evening Standard last week about the difficulty with which the whole family were taking Jac's sudden illness and is hoping to raise awareness for the issue of strokes among younger people.

“Words can’t explain how devastating the stroke has been for Rob and our family — he lived for football," he said.

“It’s important that people realise strokes don’t affect just over-thirties — they affect young people too.

“Doctors need to be aware and there needs to be the right level of support so people like Jac have the best chance of recovering."

We're hoping that a host of other big-name footballers follow suit and take the time out of their schedule to spend some time with a deserving fan.
