Football legend Jimmy Greaves has been taken to hospital though there is no suggestion it is linked to coronavirus.
Spurs announced on social media: “We can confirm that our record goalscorer Jimmy Greaves is currently being treated in hospital.
“We are in touch with his family and will provide further updates in due course.
Greaves has been taken to hospital in Chelmsford, Essex, near his home.
The former footballing great and pundit, 80, suffered a stroke almost five years ago and now uses a wheelchair.
His family and professional carers look after him.
Greaves’ 357 goals for England remains unbeaten 49 years after his retirement.
And nobody has managed to top his record 266 goals for Tottenham.
