Ice hockey legend Börje Salming recently learned that he has been affected by the nerve disease ALS.
- I have received news that has shaken the life of me and my family.
The signs that indicated that everything was not right in my body turned out to be the disease ALS.
In an instant, everything changes, he said last week in a statement to the TT news agency.
"Great to see him"
Today, however, he was seen in the stands in Munich, where his daughter is competing in the athletics EC heptathlon.
- That's where he sits, father Börje Salming.
Great to see him considering the boring, boring news that came last week, says SVT Sports commentator Ola Bränholm, as the TV cameras zoom in on Börje.
The 71-year-old, who is considered one of Swedish ice hockey's biggest stars ever, was - just like the other people in the party - dressed in blue shirts with the yellow text "Bianca Salming Fan Club".
- It is clear who they are there to support, notes SVT Sports expert Gustav Zetterlund.
