Paddy Doherty COVID update
The former bare-knuckle boxer struggled to be heard over the noise of the machine he was connected to.
But he expressed hopes he might be discharged before too long.
And Paddy – who was previously hospitalised with COVID in January 2021 and suffered a heart attack earlier this year – insisted he will recover.
“Back again. Not too good. Just in the lungs, over the COVID,” Paddy said.
He added: “I’ll be all right.”
