George Best remains seriously ill in hospital this morning, with doctors saying his condition is "unchanged".

The 59-year old football legend, who is suffering from internal bleeding, has been attached to a ventilator in intensive care.

Staff at London's Cromwell Hospital, where Best is being treated, said: "He is currently improved but he remains seriously ill."

Former team-mate Denis Law wept after visiting him on Friday, while Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said the club's supporters were "rooting" for him to pull through

Mr Law wiped away tears as he left the hospital in London and spoke of his shock at his former team-mate's condition.


"He is not good but he is fighting," he said. "The doctors are giving him the best treatment but he is seriously ill.

Sir Alex said: "Everyone at the club is praying for him. We hope he pulls through this recent dip in his health."

The ex-footballer's condition deteriorated severely earlier this week after four weeks of hospital treatment for an infection.

His latest health problems are thought to be related to immuno-suppressant drugs he has been taking since he had a liver transplant in 2002.

The drugs are designed to stop the new organ being rejected.d'
