Paul Gascoigne, the former England footballer, is believed to have been taken to hospital yesterday after being found drunk outside his home.

Paramedics and police were called to Mr Gascoigne’s rented apartment in Sandbanks, Dorset, England, to find him slumped on the ground holding a bottle of vodka.

The former Lazio and Tottenham Hotspur star is reportedly in the process of being evicted by his landlord from the £3 million property where neighbours had recently complained of the noise.

On Thursday night he was reportedly being treated at Poole Hospital..

A friend told the Daily Mirror: “It is very sad. But the reality is Paul has been drinking for the past few weeks and once that happens things will only end one way.

“Today things came to a head. He has had a lot on his plate as he is in the process of trying to find somewhere to live.

“His landlord had given him 10 days to get out of the flat and it was weighing on his mind. Obviously things became too much for him in the past couple of days and he has turned back to the bottle.”

A spokeswoman for South West Ambulance Service in England confirmed paramedics were called to attend to a patient in the area on Thursday afternoon.

Yesterday it was reported that Mr Gascoigne had signed to play for Abbey Windows FC in Bournemouth’s Sunday football league.

He last played professional football a decade ago when he made five appearances for then-League Two side Boston United.
