New research has indicated that Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is not a cheating diver, but has a rare form of narcolepsy.
Chelsea medical staff have released details of the Ivorian’s condition.
"It is a rare, stress-related disorder," said club doctor Bryan English. "It is often triggered by Didier coming into close proximity with defenders, causing him to momentarily fall into a deep slumber and collapse to the floor. It is unfortunate that this serious disability has been misconstrued as diving by some opposition players."
