He was a Super Bowl champion once and three-time league MVP during his time with the Green Bay Packers.

But the 11-time Pro Bowler - who also played for Atlanta Falcons, Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets - made a huge revelation this week.

Speaking on radio show The Bubba Army, Favre said: "Concussions happen all the time.

"You get tackled and your head hits the turf, you see flashes of light or ringing in your ears but you're able to play—that's a concussion.

"So, based on that, (I've suffered) thousands.

"Had to be, because every time my head hit the turf, there was ringing or stars going, flash bulbs … but I was still able to play."

Favre was sacked more than 500 times during his career.

But he was only diagnosed with concussions on a few occasions.

He added: "That's what's kind of frightening about the concussion thing—it's the ones that seem minor that do the damage because you're able to play and keep going."

The quarterback has spoken in the past about forgetting his daughter played youth soccer and other 'scary' moments of memory loss.

He is now part of a campaign with the Concussion Legacy Foundation pushing for children under 14 to play flag football in an attempt to reduce CTE risk.
