Robson is understood to have highlighted pain in his leg at the start of the week, before being taken to hospital where analysis of the problem revealed the blood clots – which can form in either veins or arteries and can completely block the body’s blood flow if not treated.
He will see a specialist this weekend ahead of further treatment, but no timeframe has been put on his return but it is feared the lay off could be months not weeks.
