Jimmy Greaves is out of intensive care following the severe stroke he suffered on Sunday and is able to sit up in bed, his family has said.

The former Tottenham and England striker, 75, was admitted to hospital at the weekend.

A statement from the family released to Press Association Sport read: “We can tell you that Jimmy is out of intensive care and is able to sit up in bed. Whilst he is by no means out of the woods there is room for cautious optimism.

“We would like to thank all the staff at the hospital who have been fantastic. We would also give thanks to over 30,000 well-wishers including many players and ex-TV colleagues as well as so many fans, that have sent messages and love to Jim at this most difficult of times. The support shown has been amazing and heart warming.

“Please continue to have good thoughts for him for the long road ahead as he fights this terrible thing that has happened.”
