The 76-year-old was with his wife Diana in Manchester Airport when he began to feel unwell. According to The Sun, doctors said Law's collapse was due to a 'sudden loss of blood to the head that causes fainting'.

“I went white and did not feel well at all," the 1964 Ballon d'Or winner told the paper.

"The next thing I ­collapsed while in my seat.

“I feel better now, but I’m having tests as it’s happened a few times in the past few years.

“It’s not pleasant, one time I thought I’d snuffed it.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to join the holiday soon.”
