England and Tottenham legend Jimmy Greaves were admitted to the hospital.

Greaves, who also played for Chelsea, West Ham and AC Milan, scored 44 goals in 57 games with England and was a member of the 1966 World Cup winning team. He is the best scorer of all Tottenham’s times with 266 goals.

A Tottenham statement released Tuesday night reads: “We can confirm that our top scorer Jimmy Greaves is currently being treated at the hospital.

“We are in touch with his family and will provide new updates in due course.

“Everyone at the club sends best wishes to Jimmy and his family. “

Greaves won two FA Cups in an eight-season period at Tottenham and was part of the team that won the European Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1961-62 season. In doing so, the Spurs became the first English team to win a European trophy.

The former attacker, who turned 80 in February, suffered a stroke in 2015.
