Gary Lineker has revealed in a podcast that he can never play golf again due to his chronic arthritis.
The TV presenter and former professional footballer said that he absolutely loved the sport, but his condition has got to a point where he can't even hold a golf club.
Lineker, 59, told the Rain Delay with Mark Nicholas podcast: “I don't play any more because actually my fingers are so arthritic I can't even hold a club. I don't play but I have kept that membership."
The former England striker was asked if he'd ever play the sport again, to which he replied: "Only watching. I had to work very hard at it. I loved golf."
Lineker, host of Match of the Day, revealed that often his temper would get the better of him on the golf course.
"If I do something I want to do it as well as I can. It used to frustrate me though so much, golf.
"My golf was a bit like my football, I always felt. I was hopeless from long range but once I got close in I was quite good. It's a great game, golf, but I found it hugely frustrating.
"There have been so many times I would walk off a golf course and think, 'God, you behaved like a bit of a prat today, get a grip'."
