A couple of people have noticed my hand shaking in my live 5G broadcast today. So seems a good time to reveal that I’ve recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s. I’m getting good treatment and the symptoms are mild right now - so I’m carrying on as normal. Onwards and upwards!— Rory Cellan-Jones (@ruskin147) May 30, 2019
BBC tech reporter Rory Cellan-Jones reveals Parkinson's diagnosis
Rory Cellan-Jones, the BBC's popular technology correspondent, has said that he is suffering from Parkinson's disease.
The journalist tweeted about his diagnosis this morning, after viewers commented on his hand shaking during a report on the launch of the UK's first 5G network.
He said: "I'm getting good treatment and the symptoms are mild right now - so I'm carrying on as normal."
Many Twitter users expressed their concern about Cellan-Jones health after this morning's clip aired.
Since the reporter revealed his diagnosis, dozens took to the platform to send their best wishes, including Labour MP Rupa Huq.
Cellan-Jones' 5G segment was reportedly the first to be conducted over a 5G network. But ironically, the broadcast was delayed because the crew's router used up its data allowance.
