SPORTING icon Sir Roger Bannister has revealed he has Parkinson’s Disease, just days before the 60th anniversary of his breaking of the four-minute mile barrier.

The 85-year-old was today reluctant to dwell on the subject, preferring to concentrate on the events planned for Tuesday’s commemoration.

But he told the Oxford Mail that he “does have this disability, particularly with walking, from Parkinson’s but I make as light of it as I can”.
