The Sky Sports summariser reportedly told the Sunday Mirror that he had realised he was drinking around four times the recommended weekly limit suggested by the government.

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 - is said to have told the newspaper he was shock when on his doctor's advice he worked 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 Drink Aware, the independent alcohol advice service.
