20 Apr Findings from a study of the mental, physical and financial wellbeing of retired professional sportsmen

The following presents an interesting piece of research undertaken by the Professional Players Federation looking at the mental, physical and financial wellbeing of retired professional sportsmen.

This examined the lives of more than 1000 professional sportsmen, asking them about their playing career, their transition to a second career and how they felt about that career. It identified what those who are now thriving did whilst they were playing to create that success and what the warning signs are in players that suggest they will struggle in their second career.
