Host of “Tout le sport” for years, Henri Sannier told Télé-Loisirs that he is now in a wheelchair following an accident.

It was a message of support that touched viewers as it was addressed to a journalist known to all sports fans. Henri Sannier, former of All sport for years, is indeed in very small form.

On July 27, commentators on France Televisions therefore addressed their thoughts to him during the broadcast of a handball match of the Olympics between France and Spain.

“Little by little, I am having difficulty walking”

On July 29, Henri Sannier himself gave his news to TV-Leisure. He explained what had happened to him. At the end of 2020, while he was riding his bike near his home in the Baie de Somme, the 73-year-old former host was involved in an accident. At first glance, this one was shocking and strong enough but without serious injuries:

At the end of 2020, I had a fairly serious bicycle accident near my home in the Baie de Somme. At the end of a long mountain bike ride with my wife, I was indeed hit head-on by a car. I came out with bruises all over the left side of my body, a protruding ear… I was not in great shape. After a few days of observation in the hospital I was still able to go home. But I was in pain all over.

And yet, the days go by and the pain does not subside with Henri Sannier, on the contrary:

Little by little, I am having difficulty walking, I have constant ants in my fingers. Gradually I see the paralysis in the fingers and legs coming. This good Doctor Cymes (the host Michel Cymes, his friend, editor’s note) sends me to do exams in Paris. I do a lot of meetings but they are useless. We don’t understand what I have. I am told that I have nothing.

Henri Sannier is getting better!

The former facilitator therefore underwent several treatments without much effect. Currently it is treated by plasmapheresis, that is to say the cleaning of the blood and it seems to work rather well. :

I am not walking yet but I am standing. And this is a great victory! I can feel my fingers again a little but still cannot write correctly.

The former sports journalist therefore still has a long way to go before full recovery, but he is working on it while keeping morale!
