Jimmy Greaves has been released from hospital after being taken ill last week.

A statement on the former England, Chelsea and Tottenham forward’s Facebook page said: “We are delighted to let you all know that Jimmy is now back at home recuperating with his wife Irene.

“He has been very ill and we are hoping he will be fine going forward.”

Tottenham issued a statement last week saying Greaves had not suffered another stroke, nor tested positive for the coronavirus.

No further details of his condition have been announced, with the family asking for privacy.

“If and when there is any more news we will let you all know,” the statement added. “Thanks to the thousands of you that have sent goodwill messages.

“We love that so many of you still hold Jimmy so dear to your hearts and it’s lovely to know that there is still so much love for him in the world.”
