The story continues ... more sad news about a man who obviously cannot take care of himself.
We all know Gazza's story will have a horrific end, but what can anybody do about it if he cannot help himself?
Off the rails (again)
The Sun reports that medics sectioned the 47-year-old former England, Tottenham and Newcastle footballer under the Mental Health Act at 3am on Friday after a drinking binge.
Former Tottenham team-mate Gary Mabbutt said: "Paul hasn't been well for the past couple of weeks, he wants to get better and he's asked for help. He is being looked after very well - he has got a lot of support around him."
The newspaper reported that police were called to Gascoigne's home in Poole, Dorset, at around 3.30pm on Thursday. Officers were with him when he went to hospital early on Friday.
