Souness’ English Channel Swim for Charity

Souness' English Channel Swim for Charity

Football legend Graeme Souness has been moved to tears as he spoke to BBC Breakfast about his upcoming challenge to swim the English Channel. The 70-year-old former Sky pundit and Liverpool and Scotland footballer was inspired to take on the challenge after hearing about 14-year-old Isla Grist, who has a rare condition causing her skin to tear or blister at the slightest touch. Souness hopes to raise money for the charity that supports Isla, and other children with the same condition. He will be the oldest person to ever attempt the swim, and is determined to complete the challenge despite his age.
