"The bottom line is I broke my nose very badly about seven years ago about the time when I retired. The wife didn't seem to mind me having a bent nose, but I've been having health problems over the last six months. I found out the septum had gone rotten, so I had to have that removed," said O'Leary.

"Sadly, it meant the nose had to be broken again. I had that done last week and the surgery went well, even though it wasn't very pleasant. With these two black eyes they have made me look uglier than ever. But throat-wise I now feel great, so I'll still be able to shout my instructions from the sidelines. I've just got to be careful. But I feel a lot better anyway."
