Tottenham’s all-time top scorer Jimmy Greaves is currently receiving treatment in hospital, the club have confirmed.

Nobody has scored more top-flight goals in English football than the 80-year-old, who started his career at Chelsea before spells at Milan, Spurs and West Ham.

Greaves, part of England’s triumphant 1966 World Cup squad, suffered a severe stroke in May 2015, which left him in a wheelchair.

In a statement late on Tuesday evening, Tottenham said: “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.

“Everybody at the club sends their best wishes to Jimmy and his family.”
