'Professor' Lampard's IQ puts him in Brit's most intelligent category

Posted By: Staff

London, Mar.5 (ANI): Chelsea and England footballer star Frank Lampard has returned one of the highest scores ever seen by experts, that has been put in the most intelligent 0.1 per cent of Britain's population.

The former public schoolboy, 30, is now referred to as The Professor by Stamford Bridge teammates, according to the Daily Star.

The tests were conducted by Brian English, the Chelsea club doctor, as part of research into how head injuries can affect footballers' neurological development.

"John Terry was in the top three, but Frank Lampard scored one of the highest set of marks ever recorded by the company doing the tests, and higher than me," Dr English said.

The newspaper quoted sources as claiming that Lampard's IQ score was more than 150.

Vorderman, the former Countdown presenter famed for her mathematical prowess, has an IQ of 154, while the national average is 100.

Lampard was educated at the fee-paying Brentwood School in Essex where he obtained 12 GCSEs - including an A in Latin - before turning professional at his first club West Ham. (ANI)
