A Manchester United legend is recovering after collapsing at Manchester Airport moments before jetting off on a family holiday.denis lawDenis Law and his wife, Diana, were about to fly to Menorca on Saturday when he collapsed.  He was rushed to Trafford General Hospital, where doctors said the 76-year-old’s sudden turn was due to a vasovagal condition, a sudden loss of blood to the head that causes fainting.

Now recovering at home, Law – who beat prostate cancer in 2003 – told The Sun about the scare and how he hopes to resume his holiday soon. “I went white and did not feel well at all. The next thing I ­collapsed while in my seat.

“I feel better now, but I’m having tests as it’s happened a few times in the past few years. It’s not pleasant, one time I thought I’d snuffed it.”

Law struck 236 goals in 404 appearances in a glittering career for Manchester United that included winning the 1968 European Cup. He was awarded a CBE earlier this year for his services to football and charities Cancer UK and Meningitis Now.
