Finding Jack Charlton: Watch incredible moment Jack recognises Paul McGrath

Dr Michael Grey continued with: “People with dementia know they have a problem, and when they say they don’t know typically that’s with a fair bit of remorse.” 

Pat said: “You don’t know how much they take in, if you said to him Jeff Hurst, he would look and go ‘Who?’ But if he met Jeff, he would know him.” 

Paul McGrath then showed up on screen and Jack turned around to Pat and exclaimed: “Paul McGrath!”  

And those watching the documentary noticed this and took to Twitter to comment. 

One said: “I don’t know how many times I’ve watched this, watched his face, watched the recognition, the little smile at the end. It’s possibly one of the most beautifully human things I ever saw.”
