Gascoigne was not admitted to hospital or rehab, A1 Sporting Speakers added, as it posted a picture showing the sportsman with some small cuts on his face - taken on Saturday morning.

In a statement on its Facebook page, it said: "Paul has had a bad week. This photograph is of him at 8.10 this morning. The Sun photos were bad but this is two days later, he wasn't admitted to hospital as they said in their interview.

"He went home, where he is recovering. He told me he's been working out and getting stronger and he is determined to get back on track."

Speaking last year, Gascoigne said he was "in a good place".

He told an audience at a screening of Gascoigne, a film on his life, troubles and career in June: "I just pray I don't pick up another drink. I don't want to but I just stay strong for you guys... I love the world, I love the people in it and the most important bit, you know, today I love myself."
