‘We knew that he had it’: WA footy great Austin Robertson Jr’s family reveals struggle with CTE effects

The daughter of late WA footy great Austin Robertson Jr has revealed how her father’s life “got quite small” as he battled the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

Last year Robertson told the ABC he suspected he suffered from the condition, and how he planned to donate his brain to science after his death so the disease could be better understood.
