Instead, Fabrice has he has only one thing on his mind.

He said: “Put my boots on and go out training. If I knew that the doctors gave me the all-clear to go out training tomorrow, that would be great. But I can’t.

“I really adjusted my life so I don’t worry about that. I am just happy to be able to do things. I want to learn how to swim. I want to enjoy life, do different things, explore different things that I would not have been able to do as a footballer."

The sportsman revealed: “I was asked to go to the [I’m a Celebrity] jungle but I thought this is not for me. I’m not a celebrity. I’m not interested in that.”
