Saddending and disturbing pictures of Gazza as he returns to hospital for alcohol treatment

Poor Paul Gascoigne has fallen off the wagon again.

The one-time star of English football has struggled with alcoholism throughout his life, a problem which has gone from bad to worse in his post-football life.

Said to be clean for over a year since his last detox rehab visit, Gazza was found lying outside his house with a bottle of gin on Thursday.

Still just 47, the pictures of Gazza being escorted to an ambulance are sad and disturbing; the man looks like a walking zombie and badly in need of serious help.
