Former Pompey star Chris Kamara says he is determined to cut his alcohol consumption.

The Sky Sports summariser said he realised he was drinking around four times the recommended weekly limit suggested by the government.

Chris Kamara realises he's failed to see Anthony Vanden Borre be sent off

Kamara - who had two spells at Pompey as a youngster and whose many subsequent visits to Fratton as a pundit included the famous moment when he failed to realised Anthony Vanden Borre had been sent off against Blackburn - said he was shocked when he took an online test on the charity Drinkaware’s DrinkCompare Calculator to work out out his alcohol intake.

'I started looking at what I was drinking at home and realised one glass of wine turned into a bottle and one bottle of beer turned into four or five' he said.

'The check showed I had 55 units a week – the advice is 14.

'Adding them all up, you go "hang on a minute, this isn’t going to do me any good in the long run.”'

Kamara, 59, is now an ambassador for Drinkaware, an independent UK-wide alcohol education charity.
