George Best in 'Serious' Condition

A spokesman for Cromwell hospital has confirmed that footballing legend George Best is back in intensive care on a life support machine.

The spokesman told reporters this morning:

'Mr Best remains seriously ill in intensive care on a life support machine. He was put on it some time last night or yesterday evening after his condition worsened during the day. The reason he was brought back into intensive care was with a lung infection. He is serious.'

59 year old Best has been hospitalised since early October. One of his doctors, Akeel Alisa, explained: 'We are following all medical avenues to try to keep him stable. He is ventilated so he is not conscious.'

His friend and former team mate Denis Law told Sky Sports News: 'He's on a ventilator and on the dialysis for his kidneys. He really is not looking good. He was more or less unconscious really, he's on this ventilator that is keeping him breathing and oxygen. He's not looking good. When I was down a few weeks ago, I really felt at that time I wouldn't be seeing him again and that's probably why I was a bit emotional. When I was down last week, he was off intensive care looking good, but he's had a bit of a relapse.'
