Ulrika Jonsson has branded Sven-Goran Eriksson 'not a decent person'

The 56-year-old TV presenter insisted she didn't want to discuss the former England manager, who she had a fling with in 2002, after he revealed earlier this week he has "best case a year" to live after he was diagnosed with cancer.

In a now deleted post on her Instagram Stories of a throwback picture of herself, Ulrika wrote: "Look at me being all young all that. So. PSA. I don't have anything to say about Sven. #nada. Not a decent person (sic)"

Ulrika's comments come after Sven, 75 - who made history as the first foreign manager to lead the Three Lions - admitted this week it is "impossible" to say how long he might have left, so he is trying "not to think about it".

He told Swedish radio station P1: "I'm going to resist for as long as I can.

"I have an illness that's serious.

"Best case a year, I have worst case a lot less.

"It's impossible to say exactly, so it's better to not think about it."

Sven - who guided England to the quarter-finals of the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, and 2004 European Championships - is attempting to "make something good" of the time he has left, and he wants to try to "see positives" amid his terminal diagnosis.

He said: "You try to trick the brain, it's too easy to succumb and become negative and get stuck at home.

"Better to try and see positives and not give in during hard times."
