You sweat a lot when you're playing football and sometimes the processor stops working. That's really frustrating.

I've got a hearing aid in the other ear, so I just take out my implant when I'm doing football and sports like that.

You can try a head band. You can get some nice girly stretchy headbands now which you can put over the wire to keep it in place.

Petr Cech Nowadays I wear a helmet to keep the implant in place, but I didn't feel comfortable doing that at school. I don't know why now because it's much better than it falling off all the time. Now you can get one like Petr Kech

It's frustrating because you can't concentrate on the football when you're worrying about your processor falling off.

I prefer not to wear my implant when we're playing a match
