Ex-football star Gazza back in hospital

Troubled former England football star Paul Gascoigne was back in hospital on Monday after police were called to a disturbance at a luxury London hotel.

A police spokeswoman confirmed officers were called to a four-star hotel in Knightsbridge on Sunday afternoon, and a man had gone to hospital voluntarily.

No crime was committed, she added, so the matter was no longer one for the police.

Gascoigne has struggled with alcoholism and depression since retiring from the game in 2004, and in February he was detained under the Mental Health Act after police were called to a hotel in Newcastle, northeast England, following reports he was acting erratically.

He was released after two weeks of treatment and went to stay with his father John in his native northeast.

Gascoigne is best known for his exploits in the 1990 World Cup finals in Italy where he helped his country to reach the semi-finals.

He appeared 57 times for England, scoring 10 goals for his country, and played for clubs including Newcastle, Tottenham, Lazio in Italy and Rangers.
