The former striker has netted 48 times for England and 238 goals for the club, but admits he can hardly remember any.

And the Match of the Day host said he asked, “What’s wrong with me?”

The 61-year-old tap-in specialist was asked how many of his goals he remembered during the An Evening With Gary Lineker event at London’s Design Museum.

He replied, “Hardly any.”

And when his remarks sparked laughter, the ex-Barcelona star continued: “No, I’m not kidding. I’m real and it worries me a little.

“But I’ve always been like this.

“I was at the Atletico Madrid stadium recently.

“Someone said, ‘Did you score here?’

“I said, ‘I don’t think so, and he said, ‘You scored five goals on this floor.’

“I was deeply concerned. What’s wrong with me?

“It’s been like this for over 20 years”

Though he didn’t specifically mention dementia, his comments come amid growing evidence linking the headline.

He helped launch a campaign last August to help athletes affected.
