Healer sparks a cure for Ron.
It was a delighted Aston Villa manager, Ron Saunders who put his players through their training schedule today.
But his new-found health was partly due to Saturday's resounding win over Blues.
For the first time in three months Ron had slept well.
For the first time in 30 years he was free of pain in his back and shoulder muscles.
Last Thursday night, the manager was touched by the "dynamic" healer of Hampshire, 57-year-old Miss Olga Stringfellow.
He took off the surgical collar which he had had to wear for weeks so that Olga could "feel his crackles."
An hour later, Ron felt fine. He discarded the collar. He had untroubled sleep.
And he put two decades of pain and misery behind him.
Ron, completely baffled by the Cure, said: "It is quite amazing.
"Of course he is cured," laughed Olga at her home in Hartley Wintney, nr. Basingstoke, Hants.
She explained: "I was born with a gift I cannot explain. I cull it touch healing.
"There electricity crackles in my hands if there is a malfunction.
Ron Saunders ... free from pain for the first time in 20 years.
