Unfortunately, his family goes through a hard time right now. At the beginning of the month, the BBC Radio 5 Live presenter revealed he was taken to hospital after feeling unwell on a flight from the United States to Britain.

As it turned out, he was critically ill with pneumonia. But the only regret Bacon had was that he had to miss the National Health Service's anniversary.

Sadly, it looks like the treatment didn’t work

The presenter’s sister, Juliet, has just taken to Instagram to reveal that her brother is in a medically induced coma.

Of course, Bacon’s fans from all over the world rushed to social media to wish the presenter speedy recovery.

We, too, hope he will respond to treatment soon!
